X-Ray On Baby Girl?

Has anyone had to have had xray on their daughter... my daughter had one when she was two months old... I'm just curious if anyone had any info or knows if it can be harmful to her reproductive organs? Anyone know if the xray is strong enough to effect her when she's older... Are x-ray's strong enough?

  • Just be sure cover between her hip bones if they need to xray below her elbows same for little boys and their reproductive organs.

  • My son had multiple chest x-rays between the age of 2 months and 2 years. He is now a healthy 6 year old boy and doesn't seem to have any ill effects.
