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.

I have learned that I can keep going long after I can't.

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.

Rest In Peace, Laci & Connor.
May God Embrace Your Souls & Bring Your Family Peace.
