The long-acting, nonhormonal contraceptive - for men.
Being transparent about... less transparency
Hand closing window blinds
Usually, the development of a medical device happens out of the public eye, but in our case, we have shared information with the public and have gathered a large and wonderful group of Vasalgel followers. Your support enables the Vasalgel team to demonstrate that men are ready and willing to use a new male contraceptive.

We know some of our fans are frustrated at the pace of medical device product development. We understand; indeed our wish to expand men's contraceptive options initially inspired us to optimism about the timetable. But as our team has grown, so has our understanding of the requirements of the process and the best way forward.

As in the past, we'll continue to share appropriate details of our progress in making a safe, affordable, and reversible form of male contraception. However, because we're working in a highly competitive and regulated environment, we'll be less specific about our product development plans and timelines.

We believe these changes in our communication style are the wisest strategy and will give us the best opportunity for success. As always, we're thankful to you for your continued support and interest in Vasalgel.
While you wait for Vasalgel

We obviously want men to have more contraceptive options than they have already. But while you wait for Vasalgel, you do have options. Check out to get the pros and cons of each type of birth control. When men and women choose a long-acting method (such as IUD) or double up on options (such as condoms plus pills), the risk of unintended pregnancies can be dramatically lower. Contemplating vasectomy? Some men are freezing sperm for future use; this may be more economical than attempting vasectomy reversal if you change your mind.
