Navi Mumbai, India (PressExposure) March 22, 2009 -- Contraceptives are used for preventing pregnancy and are mainly of two types, hormonal methods and barrier methods, also called as devices. Oral contraceptives account for a major part of the contraceptives market.
Condoms and oral contraceptives are the two cornerstones of the contraceptive market. Although condoms are a type of contraceptives but these two are distinct and totally different segments of the market. Condoms are different from other contraceptives used by females in one aspect and that is their use for safety against the STDs. No other contraceptive method is effective in these areas and so in this area condoms have an added advantage over other contraceptives. On the contrary the use of condoms by men while having sex is not that high.
The oral contraceptives market consists of branded products and the generic versions of those brands. These brands, for example the leading Yasmin brand by Bayer, are facing a threat to its market by the generic drugs in the US market.
