Men's Birth Control Gel- Could This Really Be a Thing of the Future?

I've never been a HUGE fan of the birth control pill for myself because it never made me feel normal. I tried it for only a few months. (Probably why I have 3 kids 5 and under right now..)

BUT- I think I am really interested in the MALE form of birth control. Seems very interesting.

Scientists at the University of Edinburgh are testing a new form of birth control - a gel that man can rub on their arms and shoulders. The gel is called NES/T and it works by causing a reaction in the brain that makes men stop producing sperm.  The project's lead researcher, says it's close to 99% effective, same as the pill, and won't interfere with future sperm production. Now the university is looking for volunteer couples to help test it out..
