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.

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.
