    $1 birth control patch

    New $1 birth control patch works in seconds, lasts for a month, researchers claim

    Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology created a low-cost contraceptive patch for women using microneedles allowing the user to wear it for seconds and get a dose that lasts for a month.

    When the patch is applied for several seconds, microscopic needles break off on the surface of the skin and administer the contraceptive drug levonorgestrel over a period of time, said a study published Monday in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Biomedical Engineering.

    Researchers said they expect the patches, which are at least a few years away from being available to consumers, could be mass produced for $1 each.

    "Our goal is for women to be able to self-administer long-acting contraceptives with the microneedle patch that would be applied to the skin for five seconds just once a month," said study author Mark Prausnitz, a professor in Georgia Tech's School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, in a statement.

    Unlike some contraceptive patches on the market that require the user to continuously wear them, the patch's backing can be discarded once the microscopic needles break off into the skin, say researchers.

    In early testing of the patches on rats, the study found the patch — which contained 100 microneedles —was able to deliver a therapeutic amount of the drug for more than a month with one application.

    In an interview with USA TODAY, Prausnitz said the goal of initial tests was to determine whether the patch could deliver levonorgestrel at the right levels in the rats' bloodstream.

    Prausnitz said it could take about five years before this patch is available to the public. Researchers say more testing is required to make sure the patches will effectively work on humans. They also said they're hoping to create a patch that could be applied every six months.

    "It's difficult for a woman in some scenarios to go to a health care professional and have a long-acting contraceptive administered," said Prausnitz. "If you could have this combination of a long-acting plus something that can be self-administered, that should be really attractive in many cases."

    Grandi said it best. Birth control means you want your wife to be a whore.
    You know what the difference between the jews and the Nazis is?
    The jews are actually guilty of the crimes their accused of.

    I do not pretend to speak for Yahweh. Birth control appears to cheating the way God wants it to be.

    Put it another way if I work for someone as a laborer. I find ways to take longer to do my job. In that way. . I think it is dishonesty in the eyes of Yahweh..

    What about the horrible side effects, they don't tell you about! Big PHARMA are not to be trusted. Pastor Visser highlighted it well (Pharmacia).
