An unlawful and dangerous medicine is now on the market in the nation, and the Ministry of Health has sounded the alarm about the situation.

The medicine is being sold on the market under the guise of a traditional Chinese herb, and it is being promoted as a birth control pill that should only be used once a month.

On Thursday, the Ministry of Health issued a warning to the public that a drug with severe adverse effects is still available for purchase in the Kenyan market, despite the fact that the Pharmacy and Poisons Board has already issued a warning about the drug and the identity of its manufacturer is unknown.

The pills were discovered to contain significant quantities of estrogen and progesterone, which are having an effect on newborns, according to the findings of tests that were carried out on the pharmaceuticals by specialists from the University of Nairobi at the national quality laboratory.
