User :   i have recently found out im pregnant and my scan says i am 6 weeks 3 days pregnant does that mean i conceived then?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   hi
User :   i am a bit confused over my dates and scan
User :   i am married and have been trying for my third child for 2 years
User :   i had a one night stand on 8th august but he used a condom
Doctor :   The days of pregnancy on the scans are based on the size of the fetus and other parameters which can be different from the calculated dates.
User :   ok so i didnt conceive then?
User :   was it before or after
Doctor :   The calculated dates are more significant in calculating the days of conception, than as that measured on the scans.
User :   ok i dont know when my last period was i think it was sometime at the end of july
Doctor :   The scan days are more similar to the ones as calcuated days only during the last trimester of pregnancy.
Doctor :   Its difficult the date of the conception based on the scan report alone.
User :   ok
User :   according to my scan i am 7 weeks and 1 day today
Doctor :   I mean to predict the date of conception based on the scan report.
User :   right so it is not accurate
Doctor :   Yes, they are not as accurated in calculating the date of conception in the first trimester.
Doctor :   The reports are more accurate in the last trimester.
User :   ok so in you opinion roughly did i conceive before or after
User :   it was a transvaginal scan
User :   and the heartbeat was visible
Doctor :   Since the date of conception calculation is not accurate based on the scan reports, I am unable to predict the exact date of pregnancy, but, you may have conceived before this date.
User :   what is the likelihood of me being pregnant from the one night stand seeing he used a condom?
Doctor :   If there was no incidence of condom failure and there was no spillage of sperms, then its unlikely that you may have conceived by this act.
User :   im a very worried about it, but it didnt split
Doctor :   If you are looking for determining the parent, then you can get the help of DNA studies.
User :   no i cant do that my husband would kill me
User :   i need to know before the baby is born
User :   we are muslim
User :   so in your opinion it is more likely that i conceived before rather than after
User :   thanks
Doctor :   Yes, there are more possibilities that you may have conceived before that.
