Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   Good evening Doctor, i want to consult for my spouse
User :   Can i have Gynacologist
Doctor :   I am a General Physician. I believe I can help you withing my expertise.
Doctor :   Are you there?
User :   Ok Doctor. My wife is conceived and we came to know by using pregnancy test card. Now its is 40 days from last LMP. There is no much intercourse in the last month, is it possible that baby can be formed from the February
Doctor :   If her previous normal menstrual period was 40 days ago, pregnancy has happened during the last 40 days.
User :   It means 100% no possibility of chance of baby formation in the Feb Month ?
Doctor :   Pregnancy is a result of fertilization of ova by the sperms.
Doctor :   This means presence of ova (the egg) is essential to cause pregnancy.
Doctor :   The release of ova described as the day/time of ovulation varies among individuals.
Doctor :   Though I cannot comment on the day of ovualatio whether it was on February or March.
Doctor :   It is possilble that your partner might have had ovulation in the month of february.
Doctor :   If you had involved in an unprotected sexual intercourse after her last normal menstrual period
Doctor :   it is possible that pregnancy could have occurred due to that act.
Doctor :   Have you followed?
User :   During Feb the she had MP on Feb 04 2011 and she was having regular period, we are have inter course and before 28 days on March 02 2011 she had MP. How can we find the fertilization formed either in month of Feb or March?
Doctor :   Do you mean that sexual intercourse was on march 2nd or she had menstrual period on March 2nd?
User :   Menstrual period on March 02,
Doctor :   Were the periods normal on the month of March?
Doctor :   I mean did your partner have normal periods or was it like spotting?
User :   Yes normal 28 days
User :   It was normal period only
Doctor :   Did you have any further sexual intercourse following this period?
Doctor :   * were in involved in an unprotected sexual intercourse after the periods on March?
User :   We had and try to keep in safer side
Doctor :   Can you explain your last statement?
Doctor :   Do you mean you had used condoms or other contraceptive methods in the month of March?
User :   No but sperm not been released inside
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Let me explain to you now.
Doctor :   There are 2 possible scenarios.
User :   Tell me sir
Doctor :   1. Pregnancy might have occurred in the month of February.
Doctor :   As I was explaining to you in the beginning, pregnancy is the result of fertilisation of egg by sperms.
Doctor :   After a period of 7 to 10 days following fertilization
Doctor :   women can have what is known as implantation bleeding.
Doctor :   This is usually a brown colored spotting with cramps
Doctor :   much similar to periods except for lesser flow.
Doctor :   However there have been some women who confuse this implantation bleeds to normal period.
Doctor :   So it is possible that your partner may have mistook this to implantation bleed to normal period.
User :   Ok Sir , is there any test to confirm whether it formed by Feb Month itself
Doctor :   2. The second scenario is since you report that you were involved in unprotected sexual intercourse later pregnancy could have occurred due to the same also.
Doctor :   It is difficult to predict when exactly this may have happened.
Doctor :   However there are few test such as
Doctor :   Blood HCG levels
Doctor :   ultrasound scans which give a rough estimate
Doctor :   of the current age of gestation.
Doctor :   A rough estimate on the exact day of fertilization/conception can be calculated based on these tests.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
User :   Yes Doctor, can we take test now?
Doctor :   Yes, you can get the test done.
Doctor :   The reports will give an estimate on the age of gestation in weeks
Doctor :   though this is not an exact estimate on the age of gestation/date of conception, I guess this should help you
User :   ok doctor thank you.
Doctor :   in getting a rough day of conception.
Doctor :   Do you have any other query?
User :   No Doctor thanks for your valuable consultation
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me.
Doctor :   Have a nice weekend.
Doctor :   Bye for now.
User :   Thakn You and same to you....
