I had an abdominal and pelvic CT with IV and ennema contrast
We were told over a year ago that I probably couldn't conceive! In the beginning of May I began to suffer with horrible rectal pain. After seeing my dr. repeatedly he sent me for Abdominal/ pelvic ct with contrast. Two weeks later at appointment for colonscopy I found out I was pregnant! Please if anyone knows for sure about this please leave info. I've searched online and panicked at some of postings!
Call the hospital where you had your procedure done and ask to speak with the radiation safety officer or health physicist. Also notify the physician who ordered the test and/or your primary care physician if you haven't done that already. That early in a pregnancy, radiation's effects tend to be "all-or-none". That is to say, either nothing will happen and you & the baby will be fine or the pregnancy will end itself :(
