    "Old" article, but only recently heard about it on the nightly news...

    Male Birth Control: New Procedure Is 100 Percent Effective, Reversible

    How does anyone feel about this? It's definitely interesting, but Idk...I don't think I want to be one of the first people in line for this...than again, I'm a paranoid person anyways.

    Sure, if it's safe I'd pop my manwhore pills.

      I've been following this for a couple of years now. It's extremely promising. If it were widely available anywhere right now I would fly there and get it done. Alas, it's not and won't be for a while yet. But it has an excellent safety and effectiveness track record and is fully reversible--this has been tested on monkeys, in some cases where they repeatedly performed and reversed the procedure many times in the same monkey, with no long-term loss of sperm count/motility or any other side effects. Clinical trials in humans have shown the worst side effect to be temporary swelling and pain in the vas deferens immediately post-op, which is no biggie at all.

      I will get in line ahead of you.
      Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

        Legbiter, just so you know, it's not a pill. It's a one-time injection into your vas deferens (sperm tubes) that leaves a polymer coating that "pops" the cell walls of the sperm as they pass through it, sterilizing them. The polymer lasts for many years, possibly a lifetime, though it hasn't been in testing that long, and is otherwise biologically inert with no known side effects. Reversal involves a second injection that dissolves and flushes the polymer out the urethra.

        So you have to get a scrotal injection. But then you never have to remember to take a pill or anything.

My concern is the chemical itself...same reason I'm not 100% supportive of hormonal birth control...messing with one's body scares me a little...that being said, if they could convince me that it is safe, shoot me up haha

                Vasectomies carry risks as well--forcing the testes to reabsorb the sperm cells that can't get through the vas tubes can cause several problems including chronic pain in the testes, which is not fun. Vasalgel allows the sperm to pass but kills them in transit, avoiding this scenario.

                Plus vasectomies are non-reversible in many cases because of scar tissue and other problems. Just FYI.

                    I definatly do it, heck I'd even sign up for clinical trials when they come here.

                      I've got an eleven year old son and I'm done having kids. Last August I got a vasectomy and I've had no issues with it at all. I've never talked to anyone that's had testicular pain or I probably wouldn't have done it. I kicked around the idea for several years before I pulled the trigger on that one.

                            The lack of primal women in my life is serving as effective birth control at the moment. ;-)

                              Absolutely, 100% would go for this.

                              If a woman messes up her contraception she has legal options and choices that men are currently denied (her choice, your wallet, emotions etc). There's also the fact that not every mess-up is truly accidental.

                              Wifey and I are currently hoping for a baby but boy could I have used this 20 years ago! Heck, even more so 30 years ago...
