Breathe easy -- birth control is now combined with breath mints thanks to an innovation by Warner Chilcoot called the Femcon Fe. The company has created a new, chewable birth control pill with a spearmint flavor. It's even FDA-approved.
Hopefully this will become widely available in copious quantities in areas where fetal alcohol syndrome runs rampant.
Implications - Birth control has revolutionized modern society, and researchers continue to look for innovative delivery methods to help those who wish to take birth control do so in a way that's comfortable and easy to remember. The patch (Ortho Evra) and the Depo-Provera shot are just some of the recent innovations that aim to take the hassle out of taking birth control.
