New male contraceptive in development that could see condoms becoming a thing of the past




There could soon be a new contraceptive for men on the market in the near future that will see condoms being a thing of the past.

The new contraceptive called the Bimek SLV, developed by Clemens Bilek, is a revolutionary new device that would stop sperm from mixing with semen prior to ejaculation. The new device will work as a valve that sits on the spermatic duct (located between the scrotum and the testicles) that can be toggled on and off beneath the scrotum skin, preventing the production of sperm ito the seminal fluid. It is understood device is made from similar material that is found in dental and cranial implants.

However Bimek’s revolutionary and maybe somewhat painful device is not yet officially approved, it is reportedly performing well in clinical trials, with the company hoping to launch it in 2018 at a cost between $5,000-$6,000.
