Birth Control for Men Could Happen in 2017!

Since the beginning of time, women have been shouldered with the sole responsibility of using birth control while men were merely responsible for wearing condoms or not. Now, this might go out of style like Fila tracksuits! A game-changing birth control for men could hit the U.S. market as early as 2017!

A non-hormonal option called Vasalgel is slated to be the first FDA-approved male contraceptive since the condom and a recent survey says more than half of men can’t wait to take it!

Here’s how it works.

Vasalgel acts as a polymer, injected directly into the tubes that transport sperm, which will block the release of sperm while allowing other fluids to pass through. One injection could last for years, but how long won’t be confirmed until after human clinical trials take place in 2016.

If and when a man decides he wants the polymer out, a second injection will dissolve it and undo the effects. Along with vasectomies, Vasalgel will have long-term effects without being so invasive and will be able to be reversed.

The birth control options for women are endless with The Pill, a body patch, a shot, a ring, an implant, IUD, but some can have complications like random periods, having to remember to take the pill and sometimes risking toxic shock syndrome with a barrier getting stuck inside.

Birth control should be both a woman and man’s responsibility and this male contraceptive could take some of the pressure off women when it comes to prevention and family planning.

Ladies, if and when Vasalgel hits the market, demand that he have it done!
