Non-Hormonal Male Contraceptive Based on Sperm Block Underway

asectomies, a simple 15-minute procedure in which the vas deferens is cut and its ends closed off. About one in six American men over 35 already has a vasectomy. However, vasectomy is generally considered permanent, leaving younger men with condoms as their only option.

Men in long-term relationships, such as Jacob Kostecka, 29, are likely to be the first ones interested in the IVD. ‘My wife doesn't want to take hormonal methods, and I don't blame her. I wouldn't want to take that stuff and have it mess with my body either! But most other methods are clumsy and ruin the moments of intimacy we have together. Something like this could be really appealing.’

The news about the IVD comes on the heels of the announcement that RISUG, a vas deferens-based male contraceptive developed in India, will resume trials in men. RISUG has been shown reversible in animals. Researchers in China are also having success with a new vas deferens device, though theirs is not being billed as reversible.

Kirsten Thompson, director of the Male Contraceptive Coalition, stresses that men can help speed development of these methods. ‘Men clearly want to know about these options--our website gets thousands of visitors each week. But there are still questions to be answered about the IVD's reversibility,’ she said. She added that ‘Men who don't want any more children and live near a study site can help answer those questions by volunteering. Otherwise, the best thing they can do is spread the word.’
