Press Release January 9, 2014
further improvement of the contraceptive pill by restoring testosterone levels.
A Dutch doctoral thesis provides support for a new and improved version of the contraceptive pill that may help to reduce some of its frequent side effects. It has appeared that the current combined pill causes a significant reduction in testosterone levels. Loss of testosterone has adverse effects on mood, energy and sexual function. Adding DHEA, an endogenous pre-hormone of testosterone, to the pill restores testosterone levels, and may favourably affect such complaints. Today, Yvette Zimmerman will publicly defend her PhD thesis on this new concept of oral contraception.
