Making contraceptive methods available to men is one of the tasks of andrology. Such methods are necessary both to maintain stable populations in industrial nations, as well as to diminish population growth in developing countries. This chapter deals with the reasons for male contraception as well as social and demographic factors and the conventional methods for male contraception are described. A separate chapter is devoted to vasectomy and refertilization (Chap. 28), while research and development in the field of male contraception are dealt with in Chaps. 29 and 30. © 2010 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
