Pregnancy and EDD estimation.

Resolved Question:

A few months ago I learned that I was pregnant. My given DD was initially February 24th and has now been changed to March 8th. In May I caught my fiancé cheating on me, I was heartbroken and really just trying to get over him, so I slept with my ex on the 28th of May, at which point I got my period, but only for 2-3 days which isn't normal for me being that my periods are generally around 5 days... By the end of the first week in June Adam (my ex fiancé) and I began speaking/seeing each other again and quickly began sleeping together again... Less than 2 months later I found out about the pregnancy.. My question is who is the father? I've used several conception calculators, but I'm still unsure and extremely anxious about everything.. Both men know about this dilemma..but I don't know what to tell them.. My doctor assures me that my new DD (march 8th) is accurate, but does that ensure my conception date being my ex Fiancé's? I'm so confused and really don't want to start my son's life off with DNA testing if at all possible.. I know that this is my fault, but that doesn't change my need for answers or certainty.

Hello,

Thanks for your query at DoctorSpring.com.

Considering your EDD to be 8th of March, your last menstrual period would be 1st of June / end of May as you state, and so you would have conceived AFTER your period, and hence the father would be Adam.
Hence that seems to be more likely.

As you very well know, a DNA test is the ONLY conclusive way to establish paternity beyond all doubts. I would appreciate it if you could provide me with the date of the period BEFORE 28th of May, and also the normal pattern of your periods ( cycle length , duration etc ).

Also the details of the earliest ultrasound scan , and subsequent scans with dates.
This information would help me to arrive at a more precise estimate of the dates.

All the best and take care.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.


Patient replied :

The dates and all other information should be legible, please let me know if you need any other information, thank you. :)


Hi again,

What I have received are the images of the scans. I would really like to have the reports -that is, the printed final inference of the scans.

That is what would give me the real information, not the images.

Also, the details of the cycle you had just before the one on 28th of May, and your general previous menstrual history, as I requested.

Please do write back.


Patient replied :

What information are you looking for exactly? I have so much paperwork, I just need to know what I'm looking for and if I have to call my doctor for any additional information that I haven't recorded. Are you looking for the measurements per date of U/S? And would you like any information on HCG levels?


Hi,

I have already requested twice for the information I want.
Let me try once more to explain - maybe I am not being clear.
I need to know the date of the ultrasound and the measurement of the baby on that date.
What i have been receiving so far have been ultrasound images ( pictures in black and white )
I need the reports which specify the date and the measurement of the baby on that date.
Please send those across.
Also, I requested you to let me know the date of your period before the one on 28th of May, and the previous pattern of your menstrual cycles.

Thank you

Hi,

I got only duplicate follow-up from you.
