Till date there is only a sole barrier method of contraception for a man which is the condom. Various researches are being done on other male contraceptive methods, in fact a male contraceptive pill and injection is already on trials.

Male condom


Male condom is the most used and popular male contraceptive method. Mostly it is made of latex and is worn over the penis when it is erect. It is a barrier method of contraception and physically prevents the sperms from entering a partner’s body. It has a small tip which acts a collector of ejaculated semen. It is 97-98 percent effective in preventing pregnancy and STDs when correctly used.



A surgical procedure called Vasectomy is performed on men. It involves severing or tying off of the vas deferens which is responsible for ejaculating sperms from the testes to the ejaculate secretion. The surgery is simple, usually performed under local anesthesia and has a high success rate. It has no effects on achieving an erection, sexual desire and performance. Reversal of this procedure might not give favourable results as success rate is less and there is a risk of side effects.
