Up to you...: Vasectomy or tubal ligation is for permanent contraception, but never 100%, yet close to. Technically, it will be much easier to have tubal ligation at the same setting of anesthesia; if not with C-section, vasectomy is technically easier and can be done under local anesthesia, and there would be virtually (minimal) no pain & no bleeding. So, talk together and decide; now is the time to share love
