Women have been saying this for decades, “Why is the pressure all on us? Men should have birth control too!”
Vasalgel is a reversible form of male birth control, received in a single shot – Because most men would admit they would never remember to take a pill every day.
The Parsemus Foundation announced Vasalgel has shown to be effective in baboon studies. The foundation is planning to start human trials for Vasalgel next year. They hope to see it on the market in 2015, in their words, “less than the cost of a flatscreen television.”
Unlike most forms of female birth control, Vasalgel is non-hormonal and only requires a single treatment in order to be effective for an extended period of time. Rather than cutting the vas deferens, as would be done in a vasectomy, a Vasalgel procedure involves the injection of a polymer contraceptive directly into the vas deferens. This polymer will then block any sperm that attempts to pass through the tube. At any point, however, the polymer can be flushed out with a second injection if a man wishes to bring his sperm back up to speed.
This is great news for men who wonder if there date or girlfriend is being honest when they say, “Don’t worry, I’m on the pill.” No more worrying about those psycho girlfriends trying to trap you into a relationship with the baby. Now guys, this one’s on you!
