I’m 17 and a few days ago I had sex but the condom came off inside me (awkward) but I took Levonelle to be on the safe side and the lady told me that it’s not 100% effective. I have a brain mri on the 4th of July and I know that mri’s are dangerous for baby’s especially in the first trimester however I’m not due on until after the mri so do I take a pregnancy test before it just to be sure? Also how likely am I to be pregnant?

I would suspect any pregnancy would be fine

Sorry I don’t quite understand? You mean you think I could be?

Without scaring you I'm afraid It's not 100 % effective if you've ovulated already. Check an ovulation calendar to check when you did.

Is your period not due before the mri? Just as that's almost four weeks away? You can do tests a few days before your due but they're not 100% accurate.

If you think you may be then you'll need to tell them before the scan as it may be harmful to a pregnancy

Hopefully you've not nothing to worry about.

An mri will not be harmful to a pregnancy at all - the only time they would even ask is if you are having an injection of contrast (dye). You can phone the hospital beforehand if you're not sure if this is involved - you should be able to have your scan without it anyway (this is also the case for people with low kidney function)

It's 3 weeks until 4 July.

If no AF by then, I think you need to talk to the MRI department to find out if you need to be rescheduled. Some scans have to be, if there is the possibility of pregnancy

If you are not due on until after July 4th it’s highly unlikely you have even ovulated yet. Very much doubt you would have got pregnant anyway.

Do you have a really long cycle? Only bleed for a couple of days? Or have sex during your period? Your timing doesn't add up if you're not due on until after 3 weeks from now.

I had unprotected sex on the day I ovulated, or day before. Took morning after pill within 12 hours and was pregnant. Its more effective I think if you take it before you ovulate.

I just realised I didn’t work it out correctly I’m due on in just under two weeks.

Yes it is possible that it’s not effective if you’ve already ovulated but I guess you don’t know your ovulation day.
Don’t panic and if your period is due in less than two weeks take a test when your due on. That will be before the mri and you’ll know for sure.

Okay, thankyou

MRI is fine in pregnancy. (No radiation)
CT scans are dangerous in pregnancy because of the radiation.

Worth speaking to your doctor if you are concerned

I wouldn't worry too much. You only have a 25% chance of getting pregnant each month anyway even if you are trying. You have also reduced any chance by taking the morning after pill. Yes, it is possible for you to be pregnant but highly unlikely.
I would take a test if your period doesn't arrive and forget worrying about the MRI.
