Vasectomy Vs Intra Vas Device – Check It Out

London: Surgical Vasectomy is in the midst of competition from a relatively new male contraceptive that is endowed with the potential of giving the procedure// a run for its money!

United States Researchers have devised a new ‘Intra Vas Device’ or IVD that can be inserted through a tiny opening created in the scrotum. This device draws upon the strength from a tiny plug of silicone gel which stops the sperms from traveling along each of the tubes, the vas deferens that links the testicles and the penis.

The efficacy of this new device was measured in a pilot study involving 30 men, where it was found that the IVD was able to offset conception. Scientists now feel the need for detailed research into whether the method is reversible in men who use the device for a good number of years. The reversibility factor proved a success when studied on monkeys.

Elaine Lissner, of the non-profit Male Contraceptive Information Project in San Francisco, said "It is a lot easier to pull the plugs out than to find the best, most expensive micro surgeon to sew a vas deferens back together. But even if you can get sperm flowing again, the chances of pregnancy go down by about 10 per cent for each year the man had the vasectomy. Only time will tell if it’s the same for IVD."
