Male contraceptive that blocks sperm to prevent pregnancy being developed

Men would no longer have to worry about having limited options such as condoms and vasectomy to protect their partners from pregnancy with the incoming contraceptive for men.

A male contraceptive with the potency of hindering sperm from leaving the penis during discharge is being developed by scientists, reports say.

It blocks two key proteins in the brain that are responsible for releasing swimmers during a male orgasm, reports confirm.

It is also said to have the ability to boost libido by dilating blood vessels, exactly how Viagra works.

Lead researcher Dr. Sab Ventura, announced that trial will begin if the next stage of drug development proves successful.

"We are moving closer to developing a convenient, safe and effective, non-hormonal oral male contraceptive that can be readily reversed," he said.

He continued: "We aim to do this by developing a combination of two drugs that simultaneously block sperm transport rather than disrupt sperm development or maturation.

With this non-hormonal approach, sperm are unaffected so the contraception is likely to be readily reversible once the medication has been stopped."

Early laboratory tests shows the drug has no impact on sexual desire.

And the preliminary trials also showed sperm remained healthy and viable, should men express a desire for children in the future.
