    Default x-rays and m/c?

    My cousin just lost her baby today at 20wks and she was saying she had a
    tooth xray a couple days before she found out she lost the baby,
    I was wondering if that might have been the reason for her loss?

    I wish I could help....but can't....

    If I had to take a guess...I would say no...At 20 weeks along, her dentist should have put a led covering over her to protect baby..

    Will she have any autopsy done?

    I am so sorry for you cousins loss

    WIth her being 20 weeks i should hope the dentist put protection on her. MY heart goes out to her though. I wondered the same thing as MArie.

    yes they are going to do an autopsy and genetic testing and
    then send the baby back to be buried.

    I lost two babies at 19 and 21wks myself and it brought back
    sad memories, but I think my dh and I helped her alot cus we
    know what its like.
    She didnt want to see the baby at first then
    I told her I didnt see my first baby and I regret it.

    First of all, let me say that I am sorry for your losses and hers.

    I do not think that the xray caused it. As far along as she was, they should have given her some form of lead apron. It must have been pretty important to get that xray as in my experience dentists and dr's will avoid xrays if at all possible.

    I'm sorry for her loss. The amout of radiation from a tooth x-ray is very low. A lot lower then a normal x-ray.
