Almost all contraceptive options to date are hormone-based and designed for use by women.
These side effects linger because synthetic hormones accumulate in the body.
The effectiveness of these contraceptive options can be affected by factors such as obesity.
The use of hormonal contraceptives is associated with side effects such as weight gain, migraines, blood clots, and depression.
Hormonal contraceptives can also increase the risk of developing cancer.
Women need contraceptive options that ensure their well-being and quality of life.
YourChoice Therapeutics is developing a first-in-class non-hormonal contraceptive for women.
