Vasalgel is an advanced birth control method for men. It is considered as a better option than vasectomy procedure. Contraceptive methods must be used to prevent unwanted pregnancy and avoid occurrence of STDs.
Male birth control is also known as male contraceptives, which is a method of preventing pregnancy, which involves male physiology. The common types of male contraceptives include withdrawal or pulling out, outercourse, condoms, and vasectomy. (1)
A new kind of reversible, condom-free male contraceptive has just cleared the biggest test, after strongly stopping the male reproduction on a group of rhesus monkeys for over a year.
This contraceptive is Vasalgel and it prevents pregnancy by blocking the tube from which sperm travels down to the vas deferens through a spongy, flexible hydrogel material. It lets the important body fluids to get move easily while stopping sperm cells, which implies that male can still ejaculate but the female partner won't get pregnant. (2)
Animal studies till date resulted that the treatment is fully unstable. And this method only needs men to get one long-lasting injection and eliminates the reminder of taking night pill.
Vaselgel is non-hormonal and long-acting contraceptive with amazing benefits over the vasectomy. The process is the same as to a no-scalpel vasectomy, the only gel is infused into vas deferens instead of removing vas (done in vasectomy). If a man wants to restore the sperm flow after months or years then a polymer is flushed out of vas with the help of another injection. (3)
Vaselgel worked on a polymer contraceptive known as RISUG (an advanced clinical trial and some of the people have been using it from past 15 years.
In the trial, around 16 adult rhesus monkeys got Vasalgel injections and then housed with 3 to 9 fertile females for one breeding season while 7 monkeys were sheltered with females for the next two years. In any of the animal, no reports of pregnancy were reported after injecting Vasalgel even they were housed outdoors and had unlimited access to other females.
There was no report or evidence of complications or bad reaction of monkey's immune system to Vasalgel. On the basis of this small trial, results were not compared to the control group, so it is still not sure whether the product has actually worked on monkeys or not. Researchers are trying hard to get the animal results in human trials. On the basis of these results and connecting the earlier tests on rabbits. Preparations have been made for first clinical trials to start behind the contraceptive for the Parsemus Foundation in 2018. (4)
Vasalgel is developed as a social venture by the foundation. Last year Parsemus Foundation said they hope Vasalgel will be in the market in early 2018, having an international pricing structure to make sure it is affordable to all the men.
Currently, men who are looking forward to opt for contraception methods into their own hands either have to use condoms which has 15% failure rate or have to go through a surgical procedure which is irreversible i.e. vasectomy. Many couples instead of this rely more on female birth control options like pill or IUDs, which has its own share of side effects and complications. Vasalgel has different approach by blocking the sperm physically, which is similar to condom or female diaphragm. It removes the problem of using a condom and other things all the time as it is injected into vas deferens for once. (5) (6) (7)
It doesn't affect orgasm or ejaculation and seminal fluid will flow without sperm. It works by blocking or filtering the sperm while RISUG was shredding the sperm along with electrical charge disturbance. It doesn't promise to stop the HIV spread as a bit of HIV lives in seminal fluid and only a third of HIV lives on sperm. So, it is suitable for committed couples or can be used as a condom backup.
