I found out I was pregnant after an HSG. Nightmare! I hadnt gotten a period in 8 months, so the doctor assumed I was fine but she was wrong.

I must have been about 3 weeks at the time of the HSG. I am now 9 weeks and have been getting ultrasounds every week to ensure all is well. Everything appears to be going well so far. I am a nervous wreck about the long term implications for this baby.

Does anyone have any insight? It has been hard to find information on this topic!

Thank you in advance!

Welcome to this forum.
This is a difficult situation, I agree with you.Moreover there is no such documentation regarding similar circumstances.The fetus definitely had an X ray exposure which is theoritically harmful for it.And neither USG nor MRI can detect the defects in 100% cases.So, you need to be counselled about it.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
