Mecico Citi.- Currently there are more than twenty contraceptive methods, but only two are designed for male reproductive organs: condom and vasectomy. This could possibly change in the coming years with marketing in pharmacies Pill for men DMAU, or Dimendrolone undecanoate, which would block the production of sperm and, therefore, also prevent pregnancy.
Two scientists from University of Wolverhampton, in the United Kingdom, published in 2016 the results of a study that showed the ability to control the movement of sperm and its fertility capacity. In the same year, however, the trial of the first male contraceptive pills was interrupted because of side effects such as acne or mood swings, all are linked, on the other hand, with a pill for women.
But now, the new DMAU pill can be a revolution in birth control methods. The most widespread at this time, in addition to male condoms, are those that a woman must take: IUD, vaginal ring, hormonal patches, female condoms and, of course, a combined oral pill. The male version It would take away social pressure on women if they are responsible for family planning.
The obtained tests to which the DMAU is subject very positive results, with only a few contraindications that do not differ much from the side effects that some female contraceptive methods also have. Men who were offered to pass the study were given weight and reduced levels of HDA cholesterol. However, they did not affect other vital organs such as the liver or kidneys.
Before this point, science has tried other methods of contraception for men who have had more or less success. Testosterone injections not only increase muscle mass, but also prevent pregnancy in female partners. Another alternative would be the actual gel that would stop the production of spermatozoa, while the gold implant would kill them.
Even an extra pill was developed. But this is not the most interesting, but the fact that it will be made from a component that is found in fruits such as mangoes, olives or grapes called lupeol. In any case, it seems that a little more scientific development is progressing at the same pace that society works towards the egalitarian world between men and women. Contraception should not be exclusively feminine.
