Default Medicals and Pregnancy

Hi Experts,

A friend of mine got medical request but she is three months pregnant. Can she go for medicals or she has to wait until the birth of baby. As chest xray can be dangerous for baby coz of radiations.

Any comments/ experience

Many thanks

That question is one for her doctor. The problem with waiting is that there will be a new person to add to the application.

Hi Jim,

thanks for your reply. She is willing to go for medicals but her Midwife said she shouldnt go for medicals as xray may effect her baby. Does CIC has any objection is she goes for medical when she is pregnant

CIC will not object. She should land before the baby's due and give birth in Canada if she intends to take the medical now. Otherwise there will be bigger problems.

It is extremely unwise to go for x-ray during pregnancy as this will most certainly result in severe damages to the baby. Its not worth for another year of waiting to take that risk!

Hi Ariel,

So wat u r saying here that she shud go for medicals even though it may effect baby. Its hard to wait for a year and then add baby and wait for another year to get PR


Many thanks

Xrays are only used for showing TB. If pregnant, she can do the tine test for TB. If negative, no xrays are required. If positive, then an xray is needed to show if TB is present in the lungs.

Just the opposite, I mean she should not go for an X-ray while pregnant. She should rather wait what it takes (I assume one year) to take the test after the baby is born and arrange what is needed for its visa. Anyway, it is her to decide.

TB is unfortunately not the only reason for the x-ray. They examine the heart and other organs and skeletal development too.

Sorry, but for Immigration, the applicant must have a full chest x-ray.

My wife was 2 months pregnant and we had x-ray and doctor told us upto 3 months that is safe. Now we are going to add baby in our application. But we already informed CIC few months back so they hold the visa till baby addition in the application.


She can send medical and also tell CIC about pregnancy. After baby born, add the new born in application.

In the US as well for immigration. Although it is not TB and not to determine the status of your heart.

My apologies for assuming Canada's prerequistes were the same as ours.

X-Ray poses a significant risk to the unborn baby. Whatever you do, dont take the X-Ray, even if that increases your wait by another year, it is not worth it if the baby and your family have to pay the consequences for the rest of your lives.

Hi, here's a link on the actual radiation in various x-rays... it's nowhere near as harmful as people think. I had x-rays in pregnancy using lead aprons to shield the abdomen and have a healthy baby. Obviously this is just my personal experience and your friend should be guided by her own doctors. Best of luck!

she is 3 months pregnent. and willing to go for medical to save another one year and want to give the birth in Canada to make baby Born Canadian.
Do u people think that CIC will complete all the remaining formalities like BG check, recieving of medical documents at medical board and its approval, pp request and finally visa stamping in next 6 months.
even then if she wants to go for medicals, no doctor will do X-ray. if some goes thru with this then consider that making a crime with featus.
