The vaginal ultrasounds are more accurate then judging by the first day of your last period. But unfortunately it's impossible to pinpoint the actual date of conception , you can get an amniocentesis done, it has risks including a small chance of miscarriage like everything else that has to do with pregnancy but you can get a paternity test done through that... Usually they do it between16-22 wks... Talk to your doc about it more but if you had sex with both men around the same time a paternity test is the only way to know

Well the sperm lives inside you up to 6 days you can concieve a few days after you ovulate so in reality it's a toss up... Did they both go inside you or did you use any protection ??

Girl you need a DNA test, the ultrasound can't tell you your baby daddy, they both came in you and both their sperm lived inside you at the same time so whichever had the strongest swimmer got you pregnant

Sperm can live 5 days inside the female reproductive tract. A translational ultrasound is used to detect the early stages of pregnancy. They pick up the earliest signs of an embryo unlike the external sonograms. However, they cannot calculate the specific day you conceived. The only sure way is to have a DNA test because you were sexually active with 2 different partners in the same 7 day period. Hope you get the result you are looking for
