Hi there, I had sex only 2 times in the last 6 months.
Patient :Hi there, I had sex only 2 times in the last 6 months. Once was on 27th November 2015 and once on 31st December 2015. At my first ultrasound the sonographer measured my fetus to be 1.7mm and no heartbeat was detected. She gave me an age of 5 weeks and 3 days however when I questioned her on whether this was since my last menstrual period or since conception she told me to see my doctor. My doctor told me she did not know which it would be. With the fetus measuring 1.7mm and no heartbeat yet I would assume that it must be 5 weeks 3 days from my last menstrual period making it approx 3 weeks 3 days from conception (31/12/15). Is this correct? Is there a chance that this could actually be from 27/11/15 making me 9 weeks from conception date (11 weeks since LMP?)
I'm stressing out so so much about this so please can someone clear it up for me? I feel like I am constantly having panic attacks which is not good for my baby
Thanks for the query at ATD.
I have gone through your query and understans your concerns completely. The fact that your last sex was on 31st dec 2015, the conception as on date should be at max 4 weeks and 1 day ols but as on ultrasound finding the average gestational age was calculated to be 5 weeks and 3 days it is likely that you have conceived after your peevious intercourse on 27th nov and has a delayed conception. This is more likely howevwr the confirmation of the paternity at the earliest can be done at 13 th week with amniocentesis and aubjecting the foetal celss to paternity DNA analysis and which shall be conclusive with regards as to who has fathered this child.
I hope I have answered your query in detail.
Wishing you safe pregnancy.
