Tubes pegged
Hi

I had my tubes pegged approximatley 6 years ago. Is there a time limit that you can have them pegged or do I need to have the pegs changed. If I know wanted to fall pregnant would pegging have damaged my tubes.

Thank you.

The procedure is permanent and does not have to be redone. If you wanted another child, the success rate after reversal would only be about 30%.
