  • I'm glad to hear you switched doctors!
    This girl doesn't sound like she has her facts straight. I suppose there is some minor risk of radioactive wavelengths affecting your eggs, but it would alter DNA, not kill off eggs. The risk is about the same was staring into a microwave. It's pretty minimal. I would ask your doctor, but I wouldn't put too much energy into worrying about this one.

  • Well if that was true I wouldn't be in my 30th week of pregnancy. I would ask her who told her that because that information is wrong.
