Patient :Hi this may seam weird but me and my girl friend started dating on Feb 20 the last time she had sex was on Feb 13 We haven't had sex yet and she just found out she is pregnant I haven't went with her to the doctor yet. they said she is only three weeks along is this possible? And she swears she hasn't had sex with anyone else
Thanks for the query.
If the last sexual intercourse was on February 13, she is pregnant and the period of gestation is 13 weeks 5 days and not 3 weeks. It is not possible that there can be so much of a difference in dating a pregnancy.
It is better to confirm with a scan and beta hCG levels to be sure about the dating of pregnancy. If it is correctly 3 weeks, then it indicates a recent intercourse in the month of May.
Hope this helped.
