Vasalgel

Vasalgel, a multi-year contraceptive

VasalgelTM is being developed as a long-acting, non-hormonal contraceptive with a significant advantage over vasectomy: it is likely to be more reversible. The procedure is similar to a no-scalpel vasectomy, except a gel is injected into the vas deferens (the tube the sperm swim through), rather than cutting the vas (as is done in vasectomy). If a man wishes to restore flow of sperm, whether after months or years, the polymer would be dissolved and flushed out.

In early 2010, Parsemus Foundation began developing Vasalgel as a new vas-occlusive polymer contraceptive. Revolution Contraceptives was created  to bring the product to market. This social venture company’s mission is to empower men worldwide to better control their reproduction with a reliable, safe, cost-effective, and reversible contraceptive.
