Neem – A Male Contraceptive?

Neem Leaf has been promoted as a natural male contraceptive. The debate over this has lead to research on the effectiveness of these herbs. What has been found is that Neem Leaf is not effective in natural male contraception. Only the oil of the Neem Seed has been shown to have any spermicidal affects.

In in-vitro experiments, Neem Seed Oil was shown to immobilize sperm cells within 30 seconds of contact with the oil. These studies were shown to be affective in a lab setting, but not in a real-life setting.

This means that while in lab studies show the oil has positive affects in birth control, no real life studies have supported this.

What is Neem?

Neem comes from a flowering tree native to India, Pakistan and Malaysia. The Neem Tree is called the life giving tree because of its ability to survive in harsh climates.

Neem Leaf is a widely available herb that is has potent anti-bacterial and insecticidal properties. Neem is a natural bug repellant. The natural oil doesn’t kill bugs like traditional insecticides, but instead repels them away.

This herb has shown great evidence in naturally reducing the symptoms of diabetes. Neem acts like insulin after being digested in the body.

Neem is also a natural ingredient in many hair and skin care products. Neem is really an all-around wonder herb. The benefits of Neem to the body are great and widespread.

Neem and Contraception

History records the use of Neem Seed Oil for contraceptive purposes. Around the first century B.C., Charaka, the Indian physician, gave a detailed method for using Neem Seed Oil for contraception. Cotton soaked in Neem Seed Oil was kept in the female vagina for fifteen minutes before intercourse. This killed the sperm. Neem Seed Oil as a source of contraception is nothing new.

Neem Seed Oil for contraceptive purposes should been done the same way it was done by ancient Indian physicians. Applying the oil to cotton or other natural fabric and inserting it into the women for 15-30 minutes can be done for contraceptive purposes.

This method is not guaranteed in preventing pregnancy in women. The only sure way to prevent pregnancy is abstinence. While some natural methods may be helpful, it is not recommended to solely rely on this one method.

Pregnancy prevention should be discussed openly between partners. Whatever method you chose, make sure to know the effectiveness. Not every birth control method guarantees pregnancy prevention.

If you are interested in Neem and its potential contraceptive effects, look for Neem Seed Oil at your local health food store or Herbalist.

    Q: I TRULY LOVE YOUR SITE! I am a health seeker by holistic means and am suffering from Uterine fibroids as well as cysts in my breast. My Naturopathic doctor told me that the fibroids wont totally go away with any and all treatment. However, I believe differently. I know that I will get rid of the fibroids, and I believe that I will also learn how to keep them driven away with the helpful information that I have found on your site. Thank you for also expounding on natural birth control. I have also been doing some research on this topic (being that the synthetic birth control, tampons, sanitary napkins and food microwaved in plasticware has created an estrogen dominance that has fed these insatiable tumors). I will be trying your natural birth control soon, and wanted to ask if you have also heard of another form of natural birth control called, "Neem Oil". It has been widely used in India with a 98% effective rate. I am just wondering what your take is on this?

    A: The Fibroid Cleanse & Regimen can greatly benefit you. It is a 20 Day Cleanse and Regimen that naturally works to strengthen and purify the female reproductive system, while helping with the reduction of fibroids.

    Q: I went on a business trip to a not so clean hotel and came back with these mites. I tried to treat them with a common cream (I cannot think of the name right now). It worked but I did not realize then that you were supposed to use a follow up application a week later. They are back, and now seem to be immune to it. I?ve read about neem and karanja oils, and I have tried them, but I am not sure I am doing it right. Any suggestions?

    A:

    Bathe in hot water, 2-3 boxes of sea salt, 7 drops of tea tree oil, 3 drops of Eucalyptus oil, and half a cup of hydrogen peroxide daily.

    Q: I have been on prescription birth control for many years now. But recently, there has been a growing voice in the back of my mind telling me to stop. I've looked into alternative forms of birth control and none of them seemed appealing until I found your HERBAL CONTRACEPTION. I immediately stopped taking 'the pill', and plan on ordering the hebal contraceptive formula asap. I am wondering if I should start the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, as well as the Female Package to rid myself of the toxic synthetic hormones I've been takigh. What would be my best option for cleansing and restoring my body? Is it necessary? And is it a bad idea to begin the Birth Control Formula while detoxing?

    A:

    I would recommend that you first perform the FULL BODY DETOX, followed by the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE and then begin your natural birth control. These 2 cleanses will help undo the damage from the man-made BC pills. They (cleanses) should be done periodically! Every 3-4 months in your case!

    Q: Thank you for the cancer info...It is welcome and beyond informative, however, I take issue with your remark that "women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men." Part of me is not surprised--men make comments like this all the time. I chalk it up to ignorance, as men enjoy living their entire lives not having to endure periods, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and lord knows what else. So because a woman does not want to have children--at all, or at a particular time in her life--she wants to be a man?! That's an illogical conclusion you are making. So why are there pregnant women with cancer, some of which who have never taken BC pills? Are women entitled to making any sort of control over their reproductive health? What about women who are infertile, naturally? If they develop cancer, is it because they never gave birth to a child? Are you willing to support all of the children that will result from women not being on Birth Control, since many people cannot afford several children on their incomes? This line of reasoning makes some women think that men really need to get over themselves. I think you have been reading too much Freud. Some women, present company included, appreciate our femininity and everything that encompasses being a woman. At the same time, this is not the dark ages--and even then, women chose not to have children during different times in their lives. Surely you are aware that in non-Western countries women utilize natural herbs to control their reproduction or as abortifacients? I am not advocating abortion; my point is that if you are going to criticize women taking BC pills, you may as well extend this criticism to women naturally preventing pregnancy via alternative means.

    A:

    Birth control pills play a big role in female reproductive cancers. Women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men. In attempting to stop or prevent life (birth control), they are ending up losing their very own lives. And the birth control pills cause cancer in areas of the body that denote femininity (breasts, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus and vagina). This is a form of language here. You have disease and female organ(s) which basically means your disease is specifically related to an issue of femaleness or femininity, that's why the disease manifests in these "female" organs. In attempting to be like and compete with males, females compromise their feminine integrity and goddess nature which "eats them up" (anger, frustration, sadness, etc.) inside. When the cancer appears in any female organ, it serves as a sign or sensor that the problem lies on a deeper metaphysical level pertaining to emotions, thoughts and attitude."

    Q: Several people in the conscious community have stated that adding flax seeds and/or flax seed powder to our diet benefits the colon for complete and clean bowel movements. My question is, does flax seed powder or the seeds themselves promote parasites in the stomach and colon? A few of my friends and I have completed the parasite cleanse and got into a debate about it. Thank you very much, Hotep!

    A:

    Flax seed undoubtedly helps the colon (due to fiberous nature) but it is absurd to think or suggest that flax seeds (in any form) promotes parasites. Meat, dairy, refined grains and other processed foods is what promotes parasites in the stomach, colon, and rest of the body. So, as Public Enemy would say: "Don't believe the hype!"

    Q: You said to get the FULL BODY DETOX and milk thistle seed tea for someone with hepatitis C, but on your site I don't see the milk thistle seed tea listed under hepatitis C, one more thing would you take the same for hep. C as you would for hep. A or B, I am just trying to be sure before I get this started.

    A:

    FOLLOW THE ADVICE IN THE ARTICLE AS WELL. PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX FIRST AND THEN CONTINUE WITH THE MAINTENANCE FORMULAS (LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FORMULA, VITAMIN C FORMULA, ETC.). HOWEVER, THE MILK THISTLE TEA IS GREAT FOR ALL LIVER CONDITIONS AND HEPATITIS FALLS IN THIS CATEGORY. IT DOESN’T MATTER IF THE HEPATITIS IS A, B, OR C. IT'S A PROBLEM WITH THE LIVER AND SO THE LIVER NEEDS TO BE CLEANSED AND DETOXIFIED.
