In search of novel OTC-contraceptives, protease inhibitor(PI) is an alternative on-demand suppository that functions by inhibiting semen liquefaction. Studies using mouse models have shown that PI effectively inhibits sperm motility and congruently lowers rates of fertilization. PI also presents minimal damage to the vaginal epithelium upon acute usages.
