Contraceptive injection for men could end need for vasectomy

Contraceptive injection for men could end need for vasectomy

Oh My God! I have been waiting for this day for over 15 years! Male Birth Control is here ladies and gents, and with almost 100% effective, women can finally almost give up having to take contraceptives! That is, if you’re in a relationship that where you know your mate has taken care of taking the Male Birth Control. I’m no doctor, so read this and find out what science has come through on. Finally! Women, this is awesome news for you if you have always had to take the birth control, now you can make your man go through with this procedure and no more birth control for you! Now, this will most likely help married couples, and lots of others too. I am just too happy, my whole life I have been on the pill since 17. Now my husband can get this male birth control and everybody wins! My husband is in the medical field and told me how unintrusive the procedure is, and can be done quite quickly. 

“If free of side effects then this novel approach has the potential for great promise as a male contraceptive. It is essential to know that the reversibility remains, irrespective of the duration of use.”

For those of us who don’t want this: 

Tired of using everything to not get pregnant? 

Need something to finally kick all those swimmers out?

“The end of the vasectomy is on the horizon after scientists announced human trials for a new contraceptive injection for men.”

“The simple process, which takes just a few seconds, involves injecting a harmless gel into the tube which transports the sperm to create a blockage.” 

“It is the same tube which is severed or tied during a vasectomy, but crucially the new process can be reversed by a second injection which quickly dissolves the gel barrier and restores fertility.”

“Scientists at the Parsemus Foundation in California are beginning trials on men to see if the process is equally successful in humans. There are currently no long-acting, reversible contraceptives available for men, whose only options are condoms or a vasectomy.”

“Although vasectomies are 99 per cent effective they can lead to painful swelling as well as ongoing discomfort for men and are increasingly being rationed by Clinical Commissioning Groups to save money.”

“The new injectable gel, called Vasalgel, is made from a dense web of molecules which form a viscous barrier when entering the tube connecting the testicles to the penis.”

“The team behind the gel is a not-for-profit organisation so the injection is likely to be fairly cheap once it comes to market, and could eventually be offered on the NHS if is passes regulatory approval.”

“British scientists said that if human trials proved effective there would be a “worldwide market” for the product, and said the initial tests showed “great promise”.”

“Prof Adam Balen, chairman of the British Fertility Society, said: “This is an interesting technique that achieves a reversible vasectomy by blocking the passage of sperm with a substance that later can be flushed out.”

“If free of side effects then this novel approach has the potential for great promise as a male contraceptive. It is essential to know that the reversibility remains, irrespective of the duration of use.”

“Vasalgel, the male birth control that’s due out in 2018, will begin studies in human males later this year, and expand its studies next year. But how does Vasalgel work? Good question. It’s a gel that’s injected into a guy’s vas deferens, otherwise known as the tube the sperm swim through to get to the egg. As I mentioned in this piece, it’s like football — the gel is the defense to the aggressive sperm trying to score. (Pun intended.) Seminal fluids will still be released, but no sperm. (No sperm!) The sperm are too big to get through the gel and, instead, they’re reabsorbed into the body. What will science think of next?!”
