Hormone-Free Male Contraceptive Pill Soon To Be A Reality
When it comes to contraception, the female contraceptive pill is a popular choice and it has been commercially available for almost 60 years. Yet despite this, a similar pill for men has never been available. This is due to side-effects that arise from working with hormones. But now, scientists from Monash University are hoping to change that within a decade, as the reality of a hormone-free male pill may be closer than we think.
Dr Sab Ventura is a Senior Lecturer for the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Monash University, and is the Lead Researcher for this project. He joined The Daily to talk about his research.
