Reversible Inhibition Of Sperm Under Guidance

Reversible Inhibition Of Sperm Under Guidance:

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has successfully tested a long-lasting male contraceptive called “Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance” (RISUG).

  • RISUG is a non-hormonal injectable male contraceptive that blocks the production of sperm by creating a physical barrier in the vas deferens, the tube that carries sperm.
  • It begins to work within two months of injection and remains effective for up to a decade.
  • The overall efficacy of RISUG in achieving azoospermia (absence of sperm) was 97.3%, and it was 99.02% effective in preventing pregnancy without any serious side effects.
  • This breakthrough in male contraception offers a safe, effective, and long-lasting option for family planning.
