    New kind of birth control shots for men

    • The gel is a combination of styrene maleic anhydride and dimethyl sulfoxide that forms the positive charge. The gel is thus injected in the scrotum.
    • Dr. Guha has used the technique where the gel carrying a positive charge, attaches to the wall of the scrotum. There it acts as an obstacle to the negatively charged sperm. The collaboration of positive and negative charge destroys the head and tail of the sperm, leaving it infertile.
    • This treatment is also known as Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance(RISUG) as the effect of contraceptive injection can be reversed with a second shot. The second shot of contraceptive breaks down the polymer and gently pushes it out of the penis.
