Male contraception

The only safe method of male contraception is vasectomy, with high reversibility secured by microsurgery. Italy, however, suffers from a lack of regulations on this subject. Hormonal treatment (testosterone plus progestational hormones) is far from providing reliability and safety, while some perspectives, theoretical only for the time being, are offered by studies on functional infertility induced by either speeding up (ganglioplegic, sympathomimetic, parasympatholytic, oxytocin, endothelin, angiotensin) or inhibiting (sympatholitic) the sperm transport through the epididymis, or altering the epididymal environment (alfa-chloridin, chlorodeoxyglucose).
