Blood samples were acquired from 60 women aged 20 to 44 years having decreased fertility, infertile or with uterine tumors in the Iraqi Kurdistan region. A pilot experiment was performed to determine alpha radionuclides in powder blood. The concentrations of alpha emitters in powdered blood ranged from 0.0036ppm in Eiskan to 0.0096 ppm in Halabjay–Kon in Sulaymania Governorate, with average (0.0085 ppm) that was high significant difference in concentration( p<0.001). And the alpha emitter concentrations in powdered blood ranged from 0.0031 ppm in Shorsh to 0.0146 ppm in Sedakan in the Erbil Governorate, with average (0.0062 ppm) that was high significant difference in concentration( p<0.001). The average results of concentration in Erbil was higher than the concentration in Sulaymania. Exposure to ionizing radiation higher than the environmental radiation levels causes different diseases. To prevent dysfunction and decreases in the life span of red blood cells, the concentrations must be determined because the high concentration and degree of exposure to alpha particles are more damaging to the living tissue and gonads, most of data have been significant, therefore, the result shown that the radiation effect on women fertility.
