Frequently Asked Questions
If my partner uses SpermaPause®, can I stop the pills or any other female contraceptive?
Male contraception with SpermaPause® is not immediate, it intervenes on average from week 6 of use of the device. During this time it is necessary to use another contraceptive while having sex with your partner. From week 6, it is recommended that the man performs a spermogram to make sure he has reached the contraceptive level. This is the only medical way to certify his contraception. Then you can give up on any other male or female contraceptive.

What is spermatogenesis?
But what if there is one spermatozoid left, is it enough to get pregnant?
No. In normal conditions, men produce tens of millions of sperm cells everyday. It is the mass effect that makes a man fertile or not. In one ejaculation, the sperm contains between 100 million and 500 million sperm cells. Related to male fertility, the United Nations has established the following values:
– Above 20 million spermatozoids per milliliter of sperm, man can fertilize.
– Below 15 million spermatozoids per milliliter of sperm, the man is declared infertile. He will have severe difficulties to fertilize.
– Under 2.4 million spermatozoids per milliliter of sperm, the man is contracepted. He cannot fertilize.
With SpermaPause®, men will go below this contraceptive threshold, down to azoospermia, which is the total absence of spermatozoids, even when semen is observed under an electronic microscope.
Is TMC a recognized method?
Why is TMC not more widespread?
Why 3 hours a day is enough with SpermaPause® while another method of TMC advocate up to 15 hours a day?
Spermatogenesis is a function of the temperature gradient: the warmer, the faster the contraceptive effect settles, which means a shorter thermal exposure duration for the same effect.- In the 1930s, the Swiss doctor Martha Vögeli gave sitz baths at 48° C to her patients and 45 minutes a day was enough to ensure contraception. When the treatment was over, the men retrieved their fertility, and the pregnancies which followed were all normal, giving birth to healthy babies.
– In the 1980s, French doctor Roger Mieusset used body temperature (37.7° C) by putting the testicles inside the body and retaining them with elastics (a so-called “nut-lifter underpants”). The temperature gap is small with the scrotum (34.4° C) when spermatogenesis is active. The warmth exposure is then longer and must exceed 15 hours per day to put it on hold.
– Our SpermaPause® device has been developed to propose intermediate temperatures between both limit values, in order to obtain a convenient range in terms of duration, between 3 and 4 hours per day. With SpermaPause®, you can adjust the warmth so you will always be in a comfortable and adequate temperature zone according to the seasons.
