I had a CT scan back in March after having severe abdominal and pelvic pains. No one told me about the affects on my ovaries so I was wondering if any of you know how long I should wait to conceive.

Thanks!

I was looking up CT's & male fertility because dh has had at least 10 since April. The info I found for men was to wait at least 4 months after the last CT.

I'll go see if I can find anything for women...

Studies in laboratory animals suggest that delaying conception for two to six months following irradiation decreases the possibility of an adverse outcome from preconception irradiation.
