Scientists have developed a chemical contraceptive that temporarily blocks the development of sperm but does not interfere with testosterone levels in men.
Trials on laboratory animals, according to a media report, have shown that the contraceptive effect is reversible and that there are no apparent long-term side-effects. Scientists hope that trials of the new male contraceptive could begin within the next few years.
This comes as no real consolation in an age rampant with STDs and HIV. Still, I wonder how many men in monogamous relationships would be willing to take the pill instead of relying on their woman to take hers.
Old dogs, new tricks. You know how that goes.
