Q.

X-Rays and trying to get pregnant

Me and my wife is trying for our second baby. She had X-Rays taken yesterday while she is now ovulating. Will this have an effect on the pregnancy/conception/baby ?

X-rays are not indicated after conception has taken place, but before that there is no known risk. If there is a chance that she may be pregnant this needs to be conveyed to the doctor who asked for the x-ray.
