I am a 29 year old female, and I was hospitalized for a week due to UTI. As a part of it, a CT scan was taken, which showed that I am completely cured. Then the next day, a blood test showed two weeks pregnancy. I am worried that the CT scan would have an adverse effect on the baby. Could you please advise.

Thanks for your reply. I have few more queries. I got opinions from two gynecologists. One of them said that since it is too early, the scan will not have any impacts on the fetus, as it is too small and advised me to continue further. The other gynecologist said that since I went for abdominal and kidney CT, irrespective of the fetus size, it will have a negative impact and recommended to abort. My husband and I are really confused and could not decide. We are thinking to get the seventh-week ultrasound. Will we get enough information to decide based on an ultrasound? Please advice.
