Contraceptive options for males

Contraceptive options for males

Nowadays, the number of birth control options for men is considerably lower than that for females.

Although there is an ongoing research to find new hormonal methods for males, currently the options they have are the one mentioned in this picture.

The most advisable and effective one is the condom, a barrier method that is 99% accurate if used properly. Methods such as withdrawal are not as safe, even though it is a common practice, especially among teens. Vasectomy is an option for men who do not wish to have children.
