Is this the Pill for men? Elaine Lissner thinks so, and she won’t stop until it’s available in the United States.
A potentially revolutionary method of male birth control — a single injection that’s 100 percent effective in preventing pregnancy for a decade, and is accompanied by nary a side effect — is already in clinical trials in India and could be available here in just a few years.
A single advocate won’t give up until RISUG, the clunky acronym for “reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance,” is a Food and Drug Administration-approved option for couples looking to knock boots without getting knocked up.
Some American experts, however, are concerned that RISUG may not be reversible. Lissner hopes to see the product approved in the U.S. by 2015.
