Birth Control (Contraception) for Women
So far your answers indicate that you are sure that you don't ever want to have a child.
Getting your tubes tied (tubal ligation) or micro-insertion tubal occlusion done in the doctor's office are two options for you. Your male partner may be open to having a vasectomy. You should consider these procedures as permanent birth control.
You might still not want to do something that can't be reversed. If so, think about an IUD. Although the risk of pregnancy with an IUD is very small, it can happen and may not be the best option for a woman who would be devastated to get pregnant.
