Hey...i broke my wrist a few years back, and went to get an x-ray but for one of the x=rays, they forgot to put the pad thing over me. Is that bad, because from what I've heard, it has to be alot of x-rays to cause sterility, and i wasnt even near the x-ray, since it was my arm that was broken, and not my leg. Please give me good news!
Sterility from x-rays
If they were just doing your arm, it's not likely your gonads would have got much exposure. In any case a full dose would be nowhere near enough to cause sterility. They are more worried about small chances of inducing a cancer, so they try to keep exposure very low.
I think it might take more than one exposure to an x-ray to cause you to be sterial. I had a xray of my hip last year and they did not cover me at all in the region that could be affected. I think if you had to have repeated x-rays of a region close yout your balls I think then you might have concerns.
