    Default How far along!

    Hi. Id really appreciate some advice..
    Im not sure Im pregnant, but I suspect sth.

    If someone had their period on the 26th of the month and sth happening around the 30th of the same month when does one start couting the age of the baby?


    How does one count how far along they are?

    Internet says from last period. Or ovulation.
    But if it happened soon after the period?

    I take duphaston(didrogesterone) from 19th to 25th day of my cycle and get my period after about 5 days from stopping taking the medicine.


    Does one maybe go back even a month when counting as I read online that even the time you werent pregnant from your LMP is counted within the age, but my last period was days before what I suspect happened.I dont understand how to calculate from such a situation.My period was almost done or done and ovulation i guess hadnt started yet.



    Please, give me your best estimation...

    My understanding is doctor will go from LMP. Have you done a test? Seen a doctor? Go to your GP for a blood test, of positive ask for a dating scan referral.

    Generally it goes from the first day of your last period. Sometimes a dating scan will show a difference in dates due to various reasons (unsure of LMP, ovulated earlier or later than thought etc). In that situation, they will generally use the dates of the scan rather than LMP. So yes, technically you are considered pregnant up-to 2 or so weeks before conception actually took place.

    If you suspect you are, do a test (but not too early as it may give a false negative), or see your Dr and have a blood test (again, if done too early it may not show enough of the pregnancy hormone to be considered a positive so it's better to wait until you are close to or late for your next period). The most reliable way is a blood test. If you aren't sure of dates, you will probably be given a referral for a dating scan.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Its a complicated situation. Ive never had sex that I remember and have gotten all my periods(I use duphaston) but my stomach is weird and I suspect sth from a couple of months ago.
    I need to know how far along..
    Does the dating scan show exactly how far along one is? Can it be truly precise?
    I assume a dr cant get the exact week right.
    Thats why i asked if the LMP counted in my case as it was maybe a week before sth might have happened.
    You guys also mentioned 2 weeks before actually conceived. I understand thismis due to ovulation but my situation is different.
    I also take didrogesterone from the 19th to 25th day of my cycle. I dont know exactly if that means I ovulate then.

    Im so scared. My life is a mess beyond anything you could imagine now. This is just one of my serious issues. I cant even begin..

    So I had to google the medication. I'm not sure how that affects things but hopefully someone on here can offer more advice about that.

    I am confused though, you said you haven't had sex that you remember? You kind of need that to happen for pregnancy to occur, unless you have had medical assistance to conceive?

    You aren't pregnant then.

    I would suggest you see a doctor if you have health concerns.
