For women, the fallopian tubes that carry eggs to the uterus are tied. For men it's a vasectomy, where the tubes that carry the sperm to the testicles (balls) are cut and tied. This is done under local anaesthetic and is IRREVERSIBLE, it cannot be undone.
It works as the egg and sperm cannot reach other, so pregnancy is permanently prevented.
