That is done either by ensheathing the penis by a rubber condom commonly known as French Leather or by covering the entrance to the uterus by means of a tampon or a cap commonly known as Dutch cap or a diaphragm or by introducing a sperm killing medicine into the vagina before the sexual intercourse.

The use of olfactory ensheathing cells [6], boundary cap neural crest stem cells [7], skin-derived precursors [8, 9], and bone marrow stromal cells [10, 11] has been attempted for this purpose; however, their accessibility and low yield have posed major obstacles to further research for clinical application.
