New Male Birth Control Method For Men

Revolutionary new male birth control that is easily reversible could be the biggest breakthrough since the condom…

A revolutionary new male control method being developed by Indian scientists offers men a safer alternative to vasectomy, and is easily reversible. The procedure is known as reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance, or RISUG, and uses a nontoxic polymer to chemically incapacitate sperm.

The substance was created by a radical Indian scientist, Sujoy Guha, a graduate of Dehli’s Indian Institute of Technology and radical scientist and writer. Guha, 70, has spent more than 30 years developing and perfecting his technique whilst facing heavy opposing from experts and skeptics.

Guha’s technique has however, slowly been gaining notoriety, simply because in all clinical trials it has been shown to work 100 percent of the time.

To perform the surgery, surgeons administers a local anesthetic, makes an incision in the scrotum, and carefully extracts the vas deferens a white tube which sperm travels through from the testes to the penis.
In a traditional vasectomy, the surgeon would then cut the vas deferens, tie up the two ends, and tuck it all back inside. Using the new technique, the surgeon simply administers an injection to the vas deferens on both sides of the scrotum.

The substance forms a coating on the inside of the vas deferens, and this chemical acts like a catalytic converter to incapacitate the sperm.

If proved successful, the new surgery would be the biggest breakthrough in male birth control since the condom. Ronald Weiss, a leading Canadian vasectomy surgeon and a member of a World Health Organization team that visited India to look into RISUG said:

“It holds tremendous promise. If we can prove that RISUG is safe and effective and reversible, there is no reason why anybody would have a vasectomy.” [Wired]

RISUG could help poor couples control the number of births in the family in the poorest Indian state; women bear an average of nearly four children, decreasing this number would give these families a greater chance of escaping poverty.

The new method would also help relieve women of any risks associated with long-term birth-control-pill use, as well as giving men a more reliable, less annoying alternative to condoms.

RISGU is now in late Phase III clinical trials in India, which could lead to the technique being approved in just two years. Although the new technique is currently only testing in India, Guha said that he receives countless emails from western men, many of whom offer to travel to India to undergo the procedure.

Not ignoring the hype, Guha has teamed up with a San Francisco reproductive health activist, to help the method approved by the FDA.

The extremely active Guha is a busy man, as well as his breakthrough male birth control injection; he is also developing an artificial heart based on the heart of a cockroach, which has 13 chambers.

His artificial heart has five chambers in its left ventricle. A system that allows pressure to be stepped up gradually, resulting in less stress on the mechanism and material compare with conventional design.
