Bill Gates has funded the project and is behind the soon-to-be-available implantable mircochip that will prevent pregnancy. The tiny chip is smaller than an adult fingernail, measuring only 20 x 20 x 7 mm and will be implanted under local anesthesia. The implant locations will be either in the buttocks, stomach or upper arm and will take about 30 minutes to do the implantation procedure.
The birth control microchip will work via a remote control and never need to be removed. the device is designed to last 16 years and can be turned on and off via the remote control any time the woman wishes to become, or not to become, pregnant.
The tiny mircochip contains standard birth control hormone, Levonorgestrel, and is sealed with titanium and platinum. The pregnancy-preventing hormone is released out into the body when a small electrical charge is passed through the seal. The electrical charge allows the seal to momentarily melt and allow the hormone to pass through.
Clinic trials are scheduled to start next year and if all goes well, the birth control microchip should be available by 2018. Until then, you can always call your friends on FreedomPop‘s wireless service to announce the good news. As further testing of the implantable microchip is done, more uses in the medical field will be on the horizon for the tiny mircochip.
