vasectomy v.s. tying tubes

My husband and I do not want to have any more children and we would like to know as to the pro' s and con' s of having a vasectomy v.s. tying my tubes? Which is better, safer and 100% effective?

No method is 100% effective, but tubal ligation and vasectomy are equally effective. The main advantage with vasectomy is that it is a much smaller operation than tubal ligation. You do have to wait about 3 months for it to be effective though.
