If you were raped and got pregnant, but 20 weeks

Patient: If you were raped and got pregnant, but 20 weeks into pregnancy lost your baby, can you still test who the father is?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.If you just had a pregnancy loss, and have the fetus preserved in aseptic conditions, you can know the father by karyotyping of the fetal tissue. If you have not preserved it, there is nothing that you can do to determine the paternity now.Hope this helped.Regards
