Trying to conceive. Have a mammogram. Had breast cancer. Situation sounds like?

I am actively trying to conceive and I have a mammogram scheduled for tomorrow. My general doctor, insisted I have one because of history of breast cancer in my family. I had one last year and there were no issues. I feel very anxious about it this year; I m wondering if it can hurt my eggs or my ability to get pregnant in any way? I know I m not pregnant and I m also not ovulating at the moment. Grateful for advice.

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
tehre is no some direct connection between cancer and ovulation. but stress and anxiety can cause hormonal imbalance. I suggest complete gynaecologist work up to evaluate is there any reproductive disorder. I am sure you are able to conceive just need some time and patiency.
Wish you good health. Regards
