Birth options for men

Birth control isn't just a woman's concern. While men have far fewer birth control options available than women, they do have options.


While there are few birth control options for men available now, there may be more in the future. Researchers are currently looking at both hormonal methods involving preventing sperm production as well as non-permanent methods of blocking the vas deferens. But more research is needed to give men more viable options to share responsility for pregnancy prevention.


*Male condoms are available in latex, polyurethane, polyisoprene, and lamb skin. Lamb skin condoms do not protect against STIs. If using latex condoms, use only water-based lubricants, not oil-based ones
