Male contraception: ideas for the future


, : Male contraception: ideas for the future. Current Therapy in Endocrinology and Metabolism 5: 271-274

Little progress has been made over the last century in developing contraceptives for men and men continue to have only a very small range of contraceptive options from which to choose. The most popular methods used by men remain condoms and vasectomy. Condom use remains, however, largely casual even despite recent interest in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV. Vasectomy is a permanent method of male contraception. There are many reasons why progress has been slow in developing male contraceptives, but they relate primarily to the physiology of the male reproductive system. The ideal male contraceptive should be practical, inexpensive, easily available, rapidly effective, promptly reversible, free of side effects, and should not interfere with sexual intercourse. The author describes approaches to male contraception in sections on the suppression of gonadotropins and immunocontraception, and closes with future considerations.
