The population explosion is one of the major problems of present era in the world. The increment of population raises so many sufferings like lack of food, water, energy and raw material supply, decline in mortality etc. before human beings and it also has increased the life expectancy Life Expectancy
1. The age until which a person is expected to live.
2. The remaining number of years an individual is expected to live, based on IRS issued life expectancy tables. . In view of above discussion, scientists have started to tackle this serious problem by developing the effective contraceptives.
The term contraceptives refers to those chemical substances that inhibit either the sperms production and sperm motility in males or prevent the formation of ovum and produce some changes in the endometrium endometrium /en·do·me·tri·um/ (-me´tre-um) pl. endome´tria the mucous membrane lining the uterus.

Noun 1. , 1965; Tyler, 1967).
The adverse effects (Borell, 1970; Kannel, 1979; Takacs, 1979; Blashkova et al. 1981) caused by oral and injectible contraceptives are increased blood transminase, cholesterol levels, indigestion, weight gain, headache, depression, fatigue, hypermenorrhea and intermenorrheal bleeding (not exceeding by 8%). These also disturb the metabolism of lipid, protein, carbohydrates, enzymes and vitamins (Zaeslein-Buthe, 1971; Bingel and Benoit, 1973a, b; Spellacy, 1974).
One of the most challenging pursuits in the realm of pharmaceutical and medical sciences is the search for newer and more potent drugs with little toxic effects, self-administrable, less expensive and completely reversible. Much of these properties are observed in the drugs of plant origin. During the latter part of this century, the practice of herbalism herbalism /her·bal·ism/ (er´-) (her´bal-izm) the medical use of preparations containing only plant material. has become mainstream throughout the world. This is due in part to the recognition of the value of traditional medical systems, particularly of Asian origin, and the identification of medicinal plants from indigenous pharmacopeias. In the Western world, in particular, the developing concept that 'natural' is better than 'chemical' or 'synthetic' has led to the evolution of Neo-Western herbalism. In the US, often guised as food or food supplements, known as nutriceuticals, these formulations are readily available for those that wish to self-medicate (Lewis, 2001).
Among the three ways of controlling population i.e. Abortion, Sterilization or Contraception, the contraceptive way of birth control is one of the most popularizing ways nowadays and different types of contraceptive devices are being used which are:
1. Mechanical devices -- diaphragm, cervical cap cervical cap
A small, rubber, cup-shaped contraceptive device that fits over the uterine cervix to prevent the entry of sperm. , intrauterine intrauterine /in·tra·uter·ine/ (-u´ter-in) within the uterus.
Within the uterus.
Situated or occuring in the uterus. devices (IUD IUD Definition
An IUD is an intrauterine device made of plastic and/or copper that is inserted into the womb (uterus) by way of the vaginal canal. One type releases a hormone (progesterone), and is replaced each year. ).
2. Physiological devices -- oral pills.
3. Surgical devices -- tubectomy/vasectomy.
In females these devices act upon any of the reproductive organ/physiological aspect like, they may
1. Be anti-ovulatory.
2. Affect the union of ova and sperm.
3. Be abortifacient abortifacient /abor·ti·fa·cient/ (ah-bor?ti-fa´shent)
1. causing abortion.
2. an agent that induces abortion.

4. Show anti-implantation activity.
5. Have effect on the uterus.
Male contraceptive (Sharma et al. 2001) are mainly directed towards:
1. Development of antispermatogenic agents to suppress sperm production.
2. Prevention of sperm maturation.
3. Prevention of sperm transport through vas deferens vas deferens: see reproductive system; vasectomy. .
4. Prevention of sperm deposition.
A few TLC systems (Beyermann and Roeder, 1967; Roeder, 1967; Szekacs and Kiembala, 1970) viz.
1. Ethyl Acetate -- Cyclohexane cyclohexane (sī'kləhĕk`sān), C6H12, colorless liquid hydrocarbon. It is a cyclic alkane that melts at 6°C; and boils at 81°C;. It is nearly insoluble in water. -- Acetone acetone (ăs`ĭtōn), dimethyl ketone (dīmĕth`əl kē`tōn), or 2-propanone (prō`pənōn), CH3COCH3 (v/v 25:75:10)
2. Ethyl Acetate -- Cyclohexane (v/v 54:46)
3. Choloroform -- Acetone (v/v 90:10) were found suitable for the separation and identification of contraceptives. The reagents used for identification were [H.sub.3][PO.sub.4] - MeOH (v/v 1:1) and [SbCl.sub.3] or [SbCl.sub.5] - AcOH (v/v 1:1) The quantitative determination was carried out by spectrophotometry spectrophotometry
Branch of spectroscopy dealing with measurement of radiant energy transmitted or reflected by a body as a function of wavelength. The measurement is usually compared to that transmitted or reflected by a system that serves as a standard. with the aid of calibration curve. The components after extracting with [CHCl.sub.3] from silica gel were identified by their [R.sub.f] values. After evaporating the solvent, the residue was dissolved in 20 ml Acetone -- Pyridine pyridine (pĭr`ĭdēn) or azine (ăz`ēn), C5H5N, colorless, flammable, toxic liquid with a putrid odor. It melts at −42°C; and boils at 115.5°C;. (v/v 10:1) mixture containing 0.1 ml nujol/100 ml. The solution is evaporated on mirror and analysis was carried out by IR reflective spectrography spec·tro·graph

Johnston (1981) used HPLC for determination of oral contraceptive formulations. The procedure involves a simple solvent extraction Solvent extraction
A technique, also called liquid extraction, for separating the components of a liquid solution. This technique depends upon the selective dissolving of one or more constituents of the solution into a suitable immiscible liquid solvent. followed by analysis on silica gel column with cyclohexane and 2-propanol as the mobile phase.
The various reviews (Jackson, 1959; Misra et al. 1961; Siegfried, 1966; Malhi and Trivedi, 1972; Orzechowski, 1972; Brondegnard, 1973; Hardman, 1974; Farnsworth et al. 1975; Kholkute et al. 1976b; San Martin Casamada, 1976; Bingel and Farnsworth, 1980; Woo et al. 1981; Farnsworth and Waller, 1982; Zhu, 1982; Bhargava, 1986c; Kong et al. 1986; Xie et al. 1986; Wong, 1987; Xu et al. 1987a) have been given on medicinal plants and their active principles for fertility regulation but the present review refer only natural contraceptives up to year 2001. The medicinal plants with their chemical substances are being summarized in the appendix (see page 245).
In addition to those plants listed, various other plant extract and plant products have also been used to control the fertility in either sex.
Korkhov et al. (Korkhov and Mats, 1983) summarised the contraceptive preparations of plant origin. Davis (1978) reported the composition containing an ovicide ovicide /ovi·cide/ (o´vi-sid) an agent destructive to the eggs of certain organisms.

n alkaline phytochemicals that contain nitrogen in a heterocyclic ring structure. They can have powerful pharmacological effects and are more often used in traditional medicine than in herbal treatments. (Coutinho, 1971; Trifunac and Bernstein, 1982) were described as short-term contraceptives. Coronaridine.HCl (Mehrotra and Kamboj, 1978) (30 mg/kg) given orally to rats on day 1-5 post-coitum prevented pregnancy. Only low order antifertility activity were found for isoflavones (Moersch et al. 1967) related to genistein in mice. Gallegos (1983) reported that the zoapatle was traditional remedy for fertility control.

adj. that induce rapid infertility may also lead to the discovery of new contraceptives. These will require developing new organs-specific delivery of contraceptive drugs. Goldberg (1999) invented novel proteins and peptides derived from proteins unique to sperm and testes. These are useful in vaccines for contraception in mammals. These proteins and peptides are also useful in diagnostic assays for assessing infertility. Howett and Reider (1999) observed that broad-spectrum microbicidal and spermicidal composition containing anionic an·i·on

The relative slow emergence of fertility control technologies for practical application clearly reflects the complexity of science and the requirement of multidisciplinary research approach. Effective immunocontraceptive vaccines will also be critically dependent on the design of the delivery systems. These will be unique to each species under study. A major challenge for free ranging species will be to ensure that the vaccine can induce a long-lasting immune response immune response
An integrated bodily response to an antigen, especially one mediated by lymphocytes and involving recognition of antigens by specific antibodies or previously sensitized lymphocytes. to a high percentage of the target population, thus reducing the frequency and, hence, the cost of vaccine application. Many of the delivery systems being considered will utilize recombinant organisms. Hence, considerations on the use of such organisms need to take into account the political, ethical and safety constraints prior to any environmental release. Also careful thought has to be given to ensure that the specificity can be built into the vaccines at several levels (Bradley et al. 1999).
From above discussion, it is evident that today is the need of hour to develop either potent oral or injectible, hormonal or biochemical contraceptives for controlling the population explosion of the world which cause no undesirable side effects. Some important factors (Iglesias, 1985; Arsyad, 1986) viz. LH-RH analogs, inhibition of leutinization/steroid formation etc. must be considered in the development and standardisation of new fertility regulating principles.
