There are many men who would welcome a new birth control option -- other than condoms or having a vasectomy . In clinical trails, some male birth control shots (like RISUG and Vasalgel) are showing very promising results. These contraceptive injections are reversible, non-hormonal, have few side effects and can last up to ten years. But these birth control shots are not available right now... they may become a reality some time in the future. Unfortunately, male birth control shot research is expensive. The high costs are stopping many developers from trying to create these new male methods.
