Different Contraceptives For Men
If you want to have sex but are scared of an unwanted pregnancy or STD, then you should know what the different contraceptives for men are. Though there are only a few contraceptives for men available in the market today, they are trustworthy enough to ensure that any sex you have is completely safe.
One of the most common forms of contraceptive for men is the condom. This is basically a thin rubber sheath that is rolled over the penis and prevents semen from going into the vagina upon ejaculation - thereby preventing STD's or pregnancy. If used correctly, a condom is about 90% successful. Condoms are cheap, easy to use, and don't have any lasting side effects, making them the preferred form of contraceptives for most men. If you plan on using a condom for the first time, you should know the correct way to put it on, to prevent it from bursting or rolling off during intercourse.
Another form of contraceptive for men is the vasectomy. This is a minor operation in which the tubes leading from the testicles to the penis are cut and tied up, preventing sperm cells from leaving the penis during ejaculation. If you get a vasectomy, any chances of an accidental pregnancy are reduced to 0, even if you don't use a condom during sex. Of course, this operation is permanent, which is why most people think a great deal before getting one. Your tubes cannot be re-attached together, so you should think before getting a vasectomy done.
Another, more risky form of male contraceptive is withdrawal. This is a technique where a man withdraws his penis from the womans vagina right before intercourse, so that the semen is ejaculated away from the vagina. This method has a higher failure rate than other forms of birth control, and doesn't protect against STD's - but is handy if you have no other form of birth control at hand.
