Considering how easy it is for women to forget to take the birth control pill, the birth control gel may be the perfect solution.

Researchers recently presented the birth control gel at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. Still in the testing stages, it has so far worked wonders for the 18 women who used it for seven months. Not only does it work when rubbed onto a number of places on the body, it also eliminates the side effects found with the Pill.
