Episode 41: No New Sperm

This week, we're talking about the male contraceptive injection. RISUG (Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance) has passed clinical trials and is being touted as the first consumer available male contraceptive (capable of being effective up to 13 years).


From the pill to the coil, we look at the history of contraception and discuss what this new injection could this mean for contraception and healthcare in general. Would you trust someone who said they had the injection? Could it be misused to promote enforced sterilisation in certain places around the world?


Also everyone bullies Alex. A lot.
