In brief: No

Having a CT scan done in the past will not affect your current pregnancy.
It also will not affect your ovaries or eggs.

In brief: Depends

This depends on when in the past you had it.
Usually radiation exposure in the first few weeks of development either causes a miscarriage or nothing at all. Radiation exposure from a single CT scan is not high enough to cause major problems after the 12 week but should only be done if the mother's health depends on it.
