Pregnant and expose to radiation / x-ray


Glad to be part of this platform

I was exposed to x-ray of the pelvic bone two weeks ago and realised just last night that I'm 3 weeks pregnant.

Which I'm very much worried because the foetus has been exposed to radiation from the X-ray .

Which I learnt can lead to mental retardation of the baby or even leukemia/ cancer.

Is there the need for me to worry

I need professional advice please

Thank you

  • I am an x ray tech. If they just did the 2 images it is about the same amount of radiation as getting on a plane ride. I would talk to your healthcare but breathe. Too early to be stressing.
