A pill that provides a safe, effective and reversible method of contraception for men, has been brought a step closer to realization by scientists, the Observer reported.
Researchers at Monash University in Melbourne discovered a way to block a couple of proteins that control the movement of sperm.
The medication would be taken orally, just like the female contraceptive pill. Taking it would have no impact on libido or sexual behavior.
The Observer said the male contraceptive pill is a significant development in the equality of the sexes. Contraception could at last become a fully shared responsibility.
