Remembering to take a pill at the same time each day can be daunting for some, but scientists think earrings containing contraceptive drugs could make it easier for women to keep on top of their birth control. Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology have found a way to put drugs in earring backs so they can be absorbed through the skin. The organization has released prototypes of the earrings, but so far they haven't been tested on humans. Professor Mark Prausnitz says, "Because putting on jewelry may already be part of a woman's daily routine, this technique may facilitate compliance with the drug regimen."
