A group of Kansas City doctors are on the verge of developing the first ever male birth control pill. The active agent in the pill will be a chemical compound named H2-gamendazole, that will keep sperm cells from developing in the testes. Doctors developing the pill say that men would experience no change in their libido and and after they stop taking it, regain full fertility in just a few weeks.

The pills have been tested on monkeys, mice, rats and rabbits (no dogs by the way). Researchers said they saw no change in the animals’ behavior and that the monkeys still appeared to be “happy.”

Developers are confident that the pills will meet FDA approval, but even then, it will be at least another decade before the Male Birth Control pill be available on the market. So until then fellas, be wise.
