There isn't any other form of permanent birth control other than these methods there are IUD's which can last either 5 or 10 years. Be sure about a tubal before you do it sometimes it can't be reversed if you decide to have babies later on. There is all kinds of birth control out there.

I have Merina also.  It is an IUD.  At first I was a little scared of them but through my research I have found that they are a lot safer than they used to be.  You don't even know it is there, and it is completly reversable.  You do need to check every so often that it is in the right place, but that is really easy to do.

My husband had a vasectomy last year and I wouldn't have it any other way.
It was quick and easy for him whereas a tubal for me would have required a half day in the hospital, and in the long run heavier more painful periods (per my dr).

I would go with Vasectomy. The reason I would choose that is because I've never heard of men having any side effects afterwards. I've heard numerous women say however that the time they would menstrate every month was very painful. Why are you looking for a permanent method? Could you try something long term but not permanent like an IUD?
