X-rays during pregnancy
Is X-rays is safe during pregnancy? NO. In most cases.
The thing is that healthy mom is more important sometimes so each case should take a different consideration. For example with dental x-rays there is hardly any exposure to any part of the body except the teeth. X-ray examinations on the arms, legs, or chest do not expose your reproductive organs to the direct beam.
However, x-rays of the torso, such as the abdomen, stomach, pelvis, lower back and kidneys, have a greater chance of exposure to the uterus. It is always important to let your healthcare provider know you are pregnant, if you might need an x-ray.
