I'm getting married in a couple of weeks also we were getting ready to trying to conceive a baby, this incident just happened a week ago. please help me. Thank you

Response from Dr. McGovern

It doesn't sound like you have had any exposure of any kind.

If you still have anxiety about this, you should see your physician. You may be having an increased level of stress related to the preparation for your wedding.

My best wishes to you for a wonderful wedding day and a life of bliss.
