Contraception allows heterosexual couples to have the most fulfilling sexuality possible while protecting themselves from unwanted pregnancy. In the majority of couples, contraception is assumed by the women. Currently, the most commonly used male contraceptive methods are the male condom and vasectomy. Many other methods, such as thermal contraception and hormonal contraceptives, havebeen proposed and evaluated.
