To birth control or to not birth control?

The other day, my boyfriend and I were having dinner. We were talking about our health and etc. I mentioned to him that I wanted to take a break from birth control pills, and asked him if he is willing to take a vasectomy? Since none of us don't want any children (boyfriend is 8 years older and has a daughter, she's in her mid 20s). He refused to get a vasectomy, I asked him why? He said "why would I want to get my balls chopped off?" I told him that his balls are not going to get chopped off. It's a small procedure where he won't be producing. He still says no, I explained to him even though we are using protection, and on top of that I'm on birth control just to prevent pregnancy. I just need a break from taking pills. He said to me " You can stop taking the birth control, and we can still do it with PRECAUTION." I looked at him and said "No thanks. No babies for me."

I do understand why he refuses to get a vasectomy, I was just thinking it doesn't hurt to ask and suggest that he would but I don't think he would understand on my situation. I'm the person would ask once and don't ask again. Should I take a break and take the risk of doing it with precaution? OR continue using birth control?
