Early Pregnancy Detection

My partner and I had sex on Jan 1, 2017. We weren’t planning and since it was unprotected i took plan B the the next day. On Jan 9th I went to the hospital for a stomach flu. They do a routine pregnancy test and told me I had Hcg detection in my urine and I am pregnant. My last period was Dec 10th. I made an appointment for the doctor but I wanted to know what are these odds? And is conception date possible? It’s now Jan 20th and I have missed my period completely, feel tired, and have abdomen pain. I took test so I am definitely pregnant.

  1. Hi Maria, If your cycles are regular with your last memorial peiord being on December 10th, your conception date is likely on or around December 24th. You can use this handy calculator here to see: http://www.medcalc.com/pregnancy.html

    What that means is you were already pregnant before the Jan 1 date. The good news is a dose of Plan B does nothing to harm an already implanted pregnancy. But be sure to follow up with your doctor who can also help establish how far along you are with an ultrasound, and help you figure out your pregnancy choices. Good luck!

    1. Thank you! Are you saying that the Jan 1st conception date impossible?

      1. You’re welcome! I would never say anything is impossible, but I’ve not seen a pregnancy that is only 8 days past conception make a urine pregnancy test positive. I’d be sure to review it (and how regular your cycles are, too) with your doctor. You might find this helpful too: http://www.bundoo.com/articles/when-is-the-earliest-i-can-do-a-home-pregnancy-test/

  2. Does anyone else feel like ovulation and conception math is rocket science?

    1. Yes! I wouldn’t be able to get by without my pregnancy calculator wheels and online calculators!
