Question Asked:

"good day doc. I last saw my period on 11th November 2016. A home pregnancy test confirmed positive pregnancy result. a hospital scan on 06/01/17 revealed that the pregnancy is 6 weeks and five days old. please I want to have an idea of the possible date of conception. I have a 30 day cycle. I had sex with my hubby on the last day of my period which is 16th of November 2016 and then on 28th November 2015. I am confused as to the possible date of conception. based on the scan result, does it mean I conceived on the last day of my period when there was residual bleeding?"

    Hello madam. Sometimes you may have been pregnant before you even noticed and some women have what we know as implantation bleed. So your last menses may have been that. Based on your last menstrual period, conception likely took place on 25 November 2016. Again these are just assumptions. Congratulations on your pregnancy and make sure you start antenatal care as soon as you can.
