Indian scientist Sujoy Guha has developed a male contraceptive called (unfortunately enough) Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance, and it’s starting to get recognition in the U.S.
The gel can last for 10 to 15 years. During that time it both reduces the number of sperm making the trip, and also physically disables the ones that do make it safely through the passageway. According to WIRED, despite battling skeptics at each step, Guha “has prevailed because, in study after study, RISUG has been proven to work 100 percent of the time. What’s even more interesting is that if ever the male wanted to reverse his decision, a second injection would be administered to dissolve the initial application of gel.
Now I am no scientist but as a woman, the question must be posed…”Do I really want remnants of 10-15 year old topical agents injected into MY body because he’s trying to prevent producing children?”. Another question that should be asked and quickly resolved before this becomes a viable contraceptive option for anyone…. “What are the effects of injecting a topical agent into the shaft of a male reproductive organ for extended periods of time?”
Where in the world are the test subjects for this product? OOOOUUUUCH!!!
