I got an X-ray not knowing that I was pregnant. Should I get an abortion?

NO – the amount of radiation delivered in a normal x-ray is very low and is unlikely to affect the foetus in any way.  The normal requirement of informing your physician if you know you are pregnant prior to receiving any x-rays is a “best practice” precautionary measure which enables the physician to consider other options for the examination.  If you have received an x-ray while pregnant and are unsure about the nature of the x-ray exam or the amount of radiation you may have been exposed to, consult with your physician.
