New Pill Makes no PMS Promises

A birth control pill without side effects?AA Or just a reason to post an egg and sperm diagram?


An American Society for Reproductive Medicine conference was told a technique called "RNA interference" could stop sperm entering the egg.

Oral contraceptives can cause nausea, headaches, and low sex drive and raise slightly the risk of DVT and strokes.

However, the new "Pill" is at least a decade away - and may have its own side-effects.

Dr Zev Williams, who presented the research to the conference, said: "We simply don’t have a contraceptive drug that is non-hormonal and reversible.

"What we are trying to do is to think about contraception in a new way.

"Obviously there are going to be hurdles and it is going to take a lot of time, but the need is there and we think it can be achieved."

Professor Bill Ledger, from the University of Sheffield, said that a lot of women still had side effects, even on the modern hormonal contraceptives. "This is a new concept. If it were available, I am sure a lot of people would want to take it.

"If it isn’t hormonal, that’s a big selling point." [via]

This basically had to be posted because of the classic picture as well as a chance for some fun alliteration.

  1. making light of the female reproductive dilemma – not so ninja worthy. not to mention immature. this one would certainly not make the woman.mnp page proud, if ever there were to be such a page.
