Is a Conception Calculator Accurate? How Do I Know How Far Along I Am?
If a woman is considering an abortion, she needs to know how far along she is to fully understand her options.
Whether or not your pregnancy is planned, we can provide early pregnancy medical services, and limited STI testing. If you have questions about the abortion pill or abortion types by trimester and your options in New Hampshire or Maine, we can provide the answers you need to help you make an informed choice. The type of abortion procedure or eligibility for the abortion pill is determined by how many weeks you are and should be confirmed via ultrasound before you decide.
Online calculators do not always produce reliable outcomes due to varying cycle lengths and not knowing the actual conception date. Also, there may be spotting in early pregnancies, which many women mistake for their period.
Even if you have regular cycles you should be aware that ovulation is not a precise science and might occur earlier or later than usual. A first trimester ultrasound is the most reliable tool to determine how far along you are.
What’s my next step?
If you choose to terminate your pregnancy, the information from an ultrasound can determine how much an abortion could cost and the abortion method. The abortion pill, for example, is only FDA-approved through 10 weeks.
Pregnancy dates must be accurate to help you determine your next steps and which options are available to you. The only way to know how far along you are, whether the pregnancy is intrauterine, and confirm viability, is through an obstetric ultrasound.
