My wife's s period was over on April 17th, 2013 and we started having sex then as we are trying for our second baby. On April 24th 2013 she had to undergo an x-ray. Now she doubts she is pregnant. We are concerned, if she was already pregnant when she underwent x-ray and it would have affected the pregnancy! Can you please advise? If she did any test before taking x-ray, was there anyway to detect pregnancy (on April 24th, seven days after the periods?
Its not too likely that she was pregnant then unless it was about 14 days since her period started. There is no way she could have tested for it that soon. The xray tech is supposed to ask any woman of child beating age if there is a chance she is pregnant, and take precautions if so.
Pregnancy is a possibility but a woman normally ovulates 11-21 days after her last menstrual period or 12-16 days before her next expected period. Every woman is different though and there may never be a set schedule for some women. It's not one size fits all when it comes to the menstrual cycle. And x-ray can harm the fetus, considering it uses radiation, and that's harmful to every living thing on earth. Oh, and pregnancy tests now days.can detect hcg before the missed period. Going to a Dr is the only way to find out for sure.
