We are in agreement: the women We are free and independent thanks to the pill contraceptive, one of inventions more revolutionary history. Bravo for her. But yes, we are also thinking of being unfaithful, because although currently the science has evolved and current pills do not have the disadvantages of the original, it is true that We are always in search of a contraceptive be kinder, nicer, cheaper and with fewer side effects.
The contraceptive pill is used by more than 100 million women around the world today. Quite a record. In addition, it’s a method which has evolved favourably over the years. When these oral hormonal were launched on the market they carried very high doses and all listened with horror stories of all the possible side effects. But with the passage of the years you have been lightening and they are currently presented with very low doses. And even so, their effectiveness is more than 95%.
Still, science has continued to research into new alternatives, we offer not only the same efficacy and minimal side effects, also the convenience of not having to be overwhelming us asking us if we take the pill last Thursday at eleven in the evening (as always) or forget it. We have searched for some.
Subdermal implants ON and OFF.
As already I have in this article the future already it is almost here and the Instituto Tecnológico de Masachussetts USA are already developing a microchip laden with hormones, hoping to market in 2018. The system consists in a subdermal that hormones can be administered over a long period of years, implant 16, but can be turned on or off via a wireless controller that you control from your mobile. Flipante, right?
The male pill.
The oral contraceptive pill for them is about to take, and the Group of researchers of the Faculty of pharmacy of the University of Minnesota (USA) dedicated to the project says that It will not lead to adverse effects on users. Lucky them. It is a drug based on the discovery of the ESP1 enzyme, which plays a key role in time to fertilize the egg. This enzyme was discovered by another group of researchers at the University of Virginia (also USA) and in their study published in the journal Biology of Reproduction revealed that although the sperm release proteins when they penetrate into the egg, the ESP1 remains intact. Thanks to its research can understand at molecular level how the sperm can join the egg… and also interrupt the process, clear.
The vaginal ring that protects you.
It is still under development, but it has already been. It’s a new ring developed by the International Partnership for Microbicides (IPM), which not only protects the women become pregnant against their wishes, also of that from catching AIDS. It is of course not a vaginal ring ordinary but it contains substances such as the dapivirina, a composite retroviral developed by the IPM. At the moment it is in phase of testing, but the results of tests conducted in South Africa by the IPM conclude that there was a 56% decrease in the possibilities of spread of the virus. Big news… and hope for that in the future protect us from diseases of sexual transmission are easier.
Vasectomy ON and OFF.
They are also entitled to use a switch to decide when they want to have SIN or not. The invention that will make is called Bimek SLV, and is small na valve 18 mm that is attached to the duct through which sperm pass. Activated prevents that these come out of the testes to mix with semen. This method is also implemented with one minor surgery, much less invasive than a vasectomy and to turn it off there is no need for a new intervention. It is estimated that it will reach the market in the year 2018, but he is still in phase of tests and research.
