YourChoice Therapeutics is revolutionizing birth control options for women and men by developing hormone-free contraceptives and bringing them to market.
Our technology is the result of a decade of research at the University of California, Berkeley and has been published in numerous high-impact journals.
The majority of contraceptives have had little innovation and have various side-effects which results in decreased use.
After ~10 years of research at UC Berkeley, we identified two novel targets on sperm that are required for fertilization.
We have shown that by blocking either of these switches, we can prevent fertilization from occurring.
We are developing highly-effective, reversible contraceptives with no side-effects for men and women.
Family planning is associated with fewer children and adults living at the poverty line.
The mission of YourChoice Therapeutics is to improve the lives of women, men and their families by developing birth control options that are hormone-free, safe, easy to use and effective.
We have found highly safe small molecules that can prevent fertilization from occuring.
We have found ways to decrease sperm energy production and prevent motility patterns required for fertilization.
