The research team found that these transdermal gels, a combination of the male hormone testosterone and a new synthetic progestin called Nestorone, can help in reducing sperm production.

This would obviously result in very low sperm count.

The benefit of the transdermal gel is that it is non-invasive and can be applied at home vis a vis other options such as progestin implants, pills or injections.
