A member asked:

I've had nuclear perfusion imaging done. i ws advised to wait 6 wks.is it ok to get pregnant after 6 weeks? is there any risk of having abnormal kids?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Normal risk: 6 weeks is plenty of time for the body to clear the radiation you were exposed to. There is no increased risk of birth defects after the 6 weeks, but remember, there are always risks, even when one has not been exposed to radiation. If you have specific reasons for fearing birth defects, talk to mfm (maternal -fetal-medicine) doctor prior to conception and make sure to take your folate (folic acid) vitamins.
