Male Contraception

Male Contraception
Male birth control pills, implants, patches and creams are on the way. I would be wary of my husband or my kids (when they are oodles older) taking hormone therapy until it has been in use for a long time. There are so many fertility problems. Would this create more? I am sure the researchers are looking at everything, but it's not uncommon to hear about severe medication side effects years after the medication is approved by the FDA.
I do think the concept is great!

For the first time, a safe, effective and reversible hormonal male contraceptive appears to be within reach. Several formulations are expected to become commercially available within the near future. Men may soon have the options of a daily pill to be taken orally, a patch or gel to be applied to the skin, an injection given every three months or an implant placed under the skin every 12 months, according to Seattle researchers.

“It largely depends on how funding continues. The technology is there. We know how it would work,” says Dr. Andrea Coviello, who is helping to test several male contraceptives at the Population Center for Research in Reproduction at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Coviello and her colleagues have found that a male contraceptive that releases testosterone over three months is potentially a safe and practical method of contraception. The Seattle researchers have been testing a sustained-released, testosterone micro-capsule, which consists of a thick liquid administered by injection under the skin.
