Is Contrast/CT's safe while TTC?

I just had a CT of my

I just had a CT of my gallbladder (which turned out fine) and it was with contrast. Is it safe to ttc this cycle since receiving the contrast? I had the test on day 5.
I think I may be having effects of stress or something from my test last week-I'm on day 12 and I had some mucusy discharge and bleeding after sex. I ovulate around day 20-23 and I have never in my life bled after sex. I'm worried the test messed my cycle up or something.

A CT shouldn't have messed up

A CT shouldn't have messed up your cycle, but if your cycle seems off somehow and you're concerned about TTC this month, call your physician.

And you're right, stress can definately affect menstrual cycles - but it shouldn't cause bleeding after intercourse - if that's unusual, that warrants a call to your health care provider.
