How can the paternity of an unborn child be ascertained?

So I’m 17 weeks and 4 days pregnant . Last time I had intercourse with my ex boyfriend was June 4 and the start date to my last period was June 26 . But I had intercourse with someone else July 16 and I thought it was his baby since I got my period after having intercourse with my ex . But it doesn’t quite make sense considering the fetus age. Is the baby my ex boyfriends or the other guy ?

To ascertain the paternity of a child we need to do a paternity test after the child is born. This is the only 100% sure test.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, I just recently found out I am pregnant. I had sex with someone, not my boyfriend, on June 3rd, unprotected. He did pull out but I know that don t always work..then got back with my boyfriend and have been having sex with him since June 8th. I did get my period right after, around the same time. Probably got off my period around the 15th. And continuesly have been having sex with my boyfriend since and during my period unprotected. It s now july and on the 23 of July, Is when i found out I was pregnant after missing my period. The thing is, I have been with my boyfriend for almost five years now and he always cums in me and this one time I messed up and slept with someone else.. could I have possibly gotten pregnant by that other someone, not my boyfriend? I am just now starting to feel the morning sickness. Please help, and judge, that s fine. I know I did wrong.
