Hi, I am a little confused on how to calculate my conception date.
The first day of my last period was October 20th (actual bleeding not spotting). I usually ovulate on the 15 or 16 day counting from the first day of the last period and my cycles last about 26 to 27 days. Anyone can help me with what would have been my conception date?
Do you know that's when you ovulate or are you just guessing? Your conception date is basically your ovulation date to all intents and purposes. Though you would have actually had sex between 1-4 days earlier.
Hi, butterfly, if your cycles are 26 or 27 days long, you would ovulate on about day 12 or 13 of your cycle. Ovulation is the lead event, and the period is the following event, and the period comes 14 or 15 days after ovulation no matter how long or short that makes things at the part of the cycle before ovulation. What makes you think you ovulate so late in your cycle? Has an ob-gyn followed you with ultrasounds and watched when the follicle develops and then is empty?
Besides trying to assess your conception date from your ovulation date, you could also make a pretty accurate guess if you had an early ultrasound that gave you a due date. Did you get an ultrasound before your tenth week, and did the doc give you an estimated due date from it?
