This article goes under the title of yikes
that's going to hurt, but ok, I guess it's worth it....



4:48PM on May 31, 2011

When it comes to birth control, it's a lot harder figuring out how to stop a bajillion little sperm than one little egg, but a scientist in India has managed to develop an injection for men that has so far proven to be 100% effective and completely reversible with no side effects.

The injection is called RISUG, which stands for "reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance." Let's just get the uncomfortable bit out of the way first: you can't just be injected anywhere, the doctor has to stick a needle into your scrotum. Twice.


so where's the conspiracy?


So why is this not available yet? Well, not to go all conspiracy theory on you, but drug companies aren't especially interested in RISUG because they wouldn't make any money on it.



So hey guys, are you willing to endure a little pain, for a lot of gain???

Won't be long until people start calling for this to be mandatory for all public assistance recipients.

No, Dr. Patel, you are not sticking that thing in my nutsack.


From New Delhi to Darjeeling
I have done my share of healing,
And I've never yet been beaten or outboxed,
I remember that with one jab
Of my needle in the Punjab
How I cleared up beriberi
And the dreaded dysentery,
But your complaint has got me really foxed.

And now he wants two jabs, does he?

I think india and china are good places to start actually, that would certainly curb the whole overpopulation issue they have going on.

Would I do it? its reversable? sure...why not. its fair enough and some women simply don't do well on the pill. seems more reasonable actually to get this one time shot verses have a woman use chemicals daily to alter her body...bring it on.

Sounds good enough to keep fetuses from being aborted unnecessarily. Thing is, is it safe? Will the "boys" down there be the same AFTER being injected? Will there be mutations and such of the sperm, if the guy comes off of this stuff?

my guy would willingly sign up for any bc. he's not one for feeling like a toy.
although he would prefer it be irreversable

I assume there will be some sort of numbing process before the needle goes in....you know kind of like at the dentist office.....or at least I hope so

I have had a few shots in my testicle. Bring it!

This would be fantastic for married men considering a vacetomy after having all the children they want. If it is a choice between the shot or the slice.... I'll take the shot!

Good one but this has been there since a very long time (more than 5 years, it has been since i read about this).
I believe, one shot to one tube of a ball and one more to the other to kill the sperm when traveling.. but this is pretty old stuff.

The product concept has been around for a while, I agree. However it's use has been limited to clinical trials, NOT in general use yet anywhere; with the recent support of the Gates Foundation, it's time frame appears to be moving much more rapidly than ever towards a general public release:


RISUG is in advanced clinical trials in India; some of the men have been using it for more than 15 years. Right now, only local men near the study sites in India are eligible for the trials, though there could be a limited market release in 2012/2013 for Indian men. But there’s good news for men outside India: RISUG may be on its way to the rest of the world! In early 2010, a small foundation that grew out of the Male Contraception Information Project purchased rights to begin studying RISUG in the U.S. and developing it for the rest of the world. The goal is to have it on the market as an alternative to vasectomy as early as 2015, with clinical trials beginning in 2012. Its new name is Vasalgel™.

The fear of getting hit in the nuts, or in this case, stabbed in the nuts with a needle, in my opinion is FAR worse than the actual pain that comes from it. Although in my opinion fear is always worse than the thing you are fearing, but that's a different story.

I'd get this done, is this even available in the US?(EDIT: Oops sorry was posting at the same time as manta, I guess it's not) I could then play up the pain and get some awesome narcotics


Actually, until they can give you a shot that stops you from getting STDs as well as producing sperm, I think I'll just stick with condoms. Going around around wrapped up isn't too bad, and I'd rather do that, then get a shot in each testicle, and then possibly other painful things in that region after sleeping with dirty girls (they don't always look dirty, you know?)

That just made my whole day.



I don't believe for a moment that anything which is made to stop a person's normal body function for 10 years is reversible.

I also don't believe for a moment that it will not cause permanent damage of some kind to the flow of a body's natural function.

It reminds me of the horrible Depo Provera shot for women.
