I'll be starting ART in two months and am scheduled to have an MRI this week for a medical condition unrelated to fertility. Could the test have any effects on egg quality? I have a call into my clinic but was wondering if anybody has heard their RE mention this.

I had a pelvic MRI done as part of my IF tests, it shouldn't cause any problems.

I had an MRI a month before my stim cycle in which I produced 34 eggs. No problems here.
