Mammogram in early pregnancy

Dear Dr. Amy,

I was exposed to radiation before I knew that I was pregnant. I had a mammogram. My LMP was 11-12-05 and the exposure occured on 11-30-05.

Dear C,

The risk of radiation exposure from a mammogram in early pregnancy are theoretical. I am not aware of any cases in which a connection between a mammogram and birth defects was established.

Sincerely,
Amy
