Now it is no longer for women only, scientists have now revealed that Male Birth Control is on trial stage and almost ready. Doctors At Indian Council of Medical Research ( ICMR ) confirmed that Male birth Control is waiting Government regulatory Approvals.
Dr. R.S Sharma, while speaking to media reaffirmed that Male Birth Control passed all the stages required and only waiting Approval from the authority.
“The trials are over, including extended, Phase 3 clinical trials for which 303 candidates were recruited with a 97.3 per cent success rate and no reported side effects. The product can safely be called the world’s first male contraceptive,” Dr. Sharma said.
Male birth Control involves injection through the penis which has successfully passed clinical trials, Sharma said.
