Have you thought about options like IUDs if she doesn't want to be sterilised?

I actually don't want my husband to get a vasectomy, he has had testicular pain in the past and from what I read the risk of having continual testicular pain after the op is relatively high compared to the minor side effects I get from the IUD.
