Permanent, highly effective, hormone-free, surgical procedures.
Tubal ligation and vasectomy are permanent birth control methods. Tubal ligation, often referred to as “getting your tubes tied,” involves surgically closing or blocking a woman’s fallopian tubes to prevent eggs from reaching the uterus. Vasectomy, for men, involves cutting or sealing the vas deferens to stop sperm from entering semen. Both procedures are highly effective and don’t affect hormone levels. Recovery time is generally short, but it’s important to note that these methods are considered irreversible and are suitable for individuals who are certain they do not want more or any children.
