Con­tra­cep­tion a blast for men

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BLOKES could soon swap the snip for the blast to stop mak­ing ba­bies.

Sci­en­tists say they have fi­nally dis­cov­ered the first male equiv­a­lent of the con­tra­cep­tive pill by us­ing an ul­tra­sound blast to stop sperm pro­duc­tion.

They’ve found that us­ing ul­tra­sound on the bol­locks can stop sperm pro­duc­tion and be used as a safe, re­versible method of birth con­trol.

Once they’ve stopped pro­duc­ing sperm you’ll have the added bonus of hav­ing to “empty” your sperm re­serves, ex­plain re­searchers, to be­come tem­po­rar­ily in­fer­tile.

Boffins at the Univer­sity of North Carolina say the best re­sults were seen us­ing two ses­sions of 15 min­utes ul­tra­sound, two days apart.

Dr James Tsu­ruta said: “This could pro­vide men with up to six months of re­li­able, low-cost con­tra­cep­tion.”

WHAT do you call a man with a one inch willy? Justin.
