How would you feel about birth control in the form of an implant in your abdomen, bum or bicep that is controlled by a wireless remote control?
Yeah, we’re a bit sceptical too.
Pre-clinical trials are starting next year in America for this new contraceptive, that has yet to be named. They’re aiming to have it on the market by 2018.
It’s kind of like a IUD, only it doesn’t go into your cervix, so this means it can last up to 16 years. The implant will dispense 30 micrograms of levonorgestrel daily , and if you decide you want to have a baby, you can just turn it off with the click of a button.
Does this sound good to you?
