Sterilisation is a permanent method of contraception that works by stopping the eggs and sperm meeting. It is suitable for both men and women who are sure they never want children or who do not want more children. For females it is called Tubal Ligation and for males it is called Vasectomy. Sometimes called the “snip”.
