Promising Male Hormonal Contraceptive are Well Established Soon a Reality
AbstractObjective: To understand the modalities used for male hormonal contraception. Methods: Literature review Conclusion: Male contraceptive methods are still limited but hormonal contraceptive methods are being developed. The basic mechanism of male hormonal contraception is to inhibit spermatogenesis by suppression of the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis function. Administration of testosterone or androgen derivative that is given in combination with progestin or GnRH antagonist shows that male hormonal contraceptive is reversible, effective, and acceptable as a male contraceptive method. However, no method of male hormonal contraceptive is ready for clinical use and marketed due to limited studies.
