I am a third year radiology resident and desire to have another
child. I currently have two boys, ages 4 and 2. My job requires
performing fluoroscopy procedures (3-4/day to include HSG's) and I am
concerned about trying to conceive while working with radiation. Its
hard to really discuss this topic with the health safety officer as I am
only trying to conceive and am not yet pregnant. This weighs heavily
on my mind as I have recently turned the dreaded advanced maternal age.
I have read that its an all or nothing kind of thing within the first
two weeks post conception and I am hoping by wearing double lead I am
not increasing my risks for miscarriage. Looking for any advice or
guidance as not many women have this issue (=.
