Trying to Conceive

I am to have a mammogram 3 weeks.  I am also trying to have another baby.  How long after the mammogram can I start to try and conceive?

I think the rule is to *not* be pregnant (if at all possible) and get the mammo.  Meaning, you can TTC anytime *after* the mammo as long as there are no other problems.  If you happen to be pregnant (or even think you might be), do let the radiologist know there is that possibility.

May you have nothing to worry about, and find yourself in the family way soon!
