Where’s daddy? This question is noted to some men who are not only missing from a child’s life but also missing in action when it comes to child conception. The most common forms of protection for procreation for men are condoms, abstinence, or vastecomies. Now, men can be known as sperm donors by choice along with adoption. In addition, the new form of conception for men in the making is in the form of a switch. This matter will discuss the future of male reproduction with technological advances to how it will prevent future families in the future.
First, it takes two to tango and the man leads with sperm and the woman follows with eggs and fertilization comes along with baby. However, some men experience tragedy with miscarriages along with low sperm count as well as adoption. In addition, there are options for men to abstain as well as having a vastecomy. What if men had the option to control their sperm with a single switch?
Second, a vascetomy for a man is as common as cutting cords for a woman to stop reproduction. The article notes on uptodate.com that the success rate of vascetomies performed is usually 99% but should proceed with caution due to complications like any other surgical procedure. Since technology has progressed for women with the arm rod similar to the IUD for women; men now have the option to get a sperm switch installed in their bodies. According to the 2016 male sperm switch article written by Samantha Olson at http://www.medicaldaily.com/new-male-birth-control-sperm-switch-temporaily-sterilizes-men-flip-switch-368784:the creator of this device is German scientist Clemens Bimken who tested this device on himself and the Bimken SLV will be tested on random men in 2018. Pretty soon, vasectomies will be a thing of the past and men can control their sperm like a light switch and practice safer sex and reproduce children in a responsible light.
Third, adoption is another way to men to have children without conception. The stats on www.statisticbrain.com state that less than 5% of men of any age would consider adoption for family status. Adoption is normally considered a woman trait but men also play a part in children’s lives.
To sum it all up, men have played a big part of children and women’s lives. Whether it is through fatherhood,brotherhood, friendships, or mentorship, men are a vital role in society and are needed in order to create balance and structure for mankind. Happy Father’s day to all the men out there.
