So the news about a male contraceptive has been discussed for about a month now, and it's not a pill. The new form of male birth control is an injection, and it's not taken in the arm!

As soon as 2017, men could receive an injection of "Vasalgel" in ahem, a special place. The gel solidifies, forming a wall which prevents sperm from flowing through the tubes. It acts as a vasectomy, but it's reversible. A second injection contains a substance that breaks down the wall, if the male chooses to have children.

Until then, you can rely on common birth control options available today. It is best to find the method that works for you, so check out Citizens for Citizens Family Planning in Fall River.
