They both have risks.  Vasectomy is less invasive.  The better option is whichever option works best for your family.

We researched this with our last as I was told I really needed to medically not have more kids. We found that there were risks and concerns for both. In the end, while Sean was more than willing to do the V since I'd done the pregnancies lol, we chose for me to have my tubes tied. It made no sense to me that we should both go under a knife (I have Csections). Plus, with the tubes it's just done. With a vasectomy you have to.... clear the tubes... for a few months before you're really 'fixed'.
