Advice please?

Hello I just got a positive pregnancy test. My last period was august 14th, before that it was july 23rd, I had unprotected sex on july 28, is there a possibility I got pregnant on the 28th and just bled heavily for a week, or did I get pregnant after the 14th of august?

  • It's possible. I'd make an appointment with an OB as soon as you can.

  • Of the 14th was the day it started you would have gotten pregnant around the 28th or August. Give or take a few days and keeping in mind sperm can live in a womens body for up to 3 days waiting to meet the egg.

  • It's very possible you could have been pregnant after the 14th of August. I'm sure you know though, the only way to really tell when you conceived is by going to a doctor. This is the exact same situation i was in. I conceived May 31st, and had 2 periods (fairly lighter than usual) after i figured out i was pregnant.

  • Will the OB be able to tell the short time difference??

  • They will use the Aug 14th date and more than likely schedule a ultarsound around 8 weeks and measure the fetus to get a better idea if you are unsure.

  • Yeah I understand.. Im just sort of freaking out thinking I may be further along than I thought. I doubt i would bleed heavily for seven days if I were already pregnant though.

  • I mean it's possible I guess in theory but I doubt it. What make you think you are further along?
