Question Is this harmful

I was suppose to get my period on the 19 but it never came and I realize it could be one of many things but if I am pregnant, Im concerned that my tanning could be doing damage. I go to a tanning bed about three times a week. What could it be doing and does it matter early on ?

Yes, it matters. Early-on is when your baby is forming, so it is the worst time to raise your body temp like that. I would stop right away, until you find out for sure. The rays are harmful, and chemicals are going into your bloodstream from it. Sorry, I know that is probably not what you were looking to hear. I have read that tanning at any time during pregnancy is a no-no, but other ladies may have other opinions.

You should definitely NOT tan until you find out for sure if you're pregnant or not. It can harm the baby, no matter what stage of the pregnancy you're in. I was tanning right before I got pregnant with my third baby and had to turn the rest of my sessions over to my hubby because I found out I was 3 weeks along.
