Remote Control Contraceptives

The future is here! A company in Massachusetts has developed a microchip capable of providing contraceptive hormones for 16 yrs before needing to be replaced.  Whilst it’s not the first contraceptive implant that’s been developed it definitely blows other out the water with its endurance. But worry not, if you want to add another member to the family just grab the remote control (not the one for the TV!) and switch it off. Simples.
