Scientists develop contraceptive that’s administered through your EARRINGS

26 March 2019 – Mirror

Scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a new technique for administering contraceptive hormones through jewellery, including earrings, rings or necklaces.

The hormones are contained in tiny patches that could be applied to the parts of jewellery that touch the skin, allowing the drugs to be absorbed into the body.

The jewellery is yet to be tested on humans, but initial tests suggest the technique could deliver enough hormone to provide contraception.
