Reversible Contraceptive for Men Being Tested

A recent National Post story describes a new form of male contraception that is as effective as a vasectomy but also reversible. A special implant is placed within the vas deferens tubes which blocks the sperm. The procedure for adding and removing the device is simple, and effectively creates a fully reversible vasectomy for its user. Initial safety clinical trials are beginning now, which will be followed by tests of the device's effectiveness.Source: The National Post [Canadian newspaper]
