Male Birth Control Pill

Male birth control pill

UK scientists invent male ‘pill’ that can be taken hours before sex

“British scientists have developed a revolutionary pill that men could take as a one-off contraceptive just before a date.

The tablet would prevent a man from being able to impregnate a woman, but within a few hours his fertility would return to normal.


…the new pill being researched by scientists at King’s College London, contains chemicals that prevent ejaculation and could be in tablet-form.

Men could take one daily, just like the female pill, or have one a few hours before sex as a one-off contraceptive.

Sexual satisfaction is not affected and the absence of hormones means that a man’s fertility should return to normal within hours of stopping the treatment.

Researcher Dr Nnaemeka Amobi said: “The non-hormonal male pill could be taken when and as needed.”"
