User :   hi i had my last period in the middle of september but bled for few days towards the end this didnt feel like a normal period though just spotting. I had sex on the 3rd of october and on the17th of october but i took the morning after pill on th 18th within the 12 hours i have found out i am pregnant and had a scan today they said i was around 5 and half weeks but they add 2 weeks on which is confusing they couldnt see anything just the sac and yolk , when do you think i concieved and is it likely i was preganant before taking the pill please help .
Doctor :   Let me read it
Doctor :  
Yes, it is alteast 4 weeks
Doctor :  
So it is before the pill only
Doctor :  
I can tell you that
Doctor :  
and they also mention it as 5 and a half weeks
Doctor :  
So, it is more likely that you have conceived before
Doctor :   Are you getting it?

Doctor :  
Are you there?
User :   yeah sorry not quite getting it?
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
I mean to say that the conception is before you took the pill
User :   thats good only i asked her today and she seemed to think it would have been around the17th i thought she ment i was only 3 and a half but added on 2 to make it five .
Doctor :   Ok
User :   does it take 5 days to get pregnant afer you have sex
Doctor :   No, but upto 3 days usually
User :   so you think it is definetly more likely i conccieved around the 3rd of october rather then the 17th because i took the pill.
Doctor :   Yes

Doctor :  
that is more likely
User :   will i be able to work this out to the exact date after my 12 week scan.
Doctor :   Yes
Doctor :  
Quite possible
Doctor :  
What is your main concern?
User :   that the baby is not my partners we split up and i had one night stand.
Doctor :  
Like what do you want do now?
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
I understand
Doctor :  
Yes, it can be dated better at 12 week scan
Doctor :   Even a blood test will also help you
Doctor :  
Speak to your Gynecologist about it
Doctor :  
You can date that back as well
Doctor :  
There wont be any problem
Doctor :  
And there is DNA test, if you wish
Doctor :  
Which will be ultimate
User :   i could be happy if i knew the morning after pill had worked and i concieved on the 3rd
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   thank you for your help
