In brief: 3 Options
For men, vasectomy.
For women, either laparoscopic tubal ligation or essure. My recommendation is to have either vasectomy or essure since they are both office procedures, no general anesthesia, and have little recovery time. Review the essure website for more info, this procedure is done easily and most women prefer it to having to drag their men to an urology appointment.
