If you thought taking the Pill every day to avoid pregnancy was a little too difficult, maybe the new gel contraceptive is for you.

The gel is applied directly to the skin once a day, and delivers a dose of hormones to prevent pregnancy.

Over seven months, 18 women trialled the gel, and none fell pregnant. Importantly, the gel has none of the Pill's annoying side effects, like weight gain and acne.
