Can a dating scan done at 13 weeks pregnancy be wrong by 2 weeks?

Yes: The older the fetus, the larger the margin of error. The estimate is based on multiple factors, and is an average of indicators. This is probably a range of dates, and not really a concrete date. You really need to see all the indices. At 13 weeks, the crown-rump length can be off this much and still be within 2 standard deviations. ...Read more

Does a pelvic ultrasound have to be transvaginal to show a 13 weeks pregnancy? Or can it be a normal pelvic ultrasound

Does a pelvic ultrasound have to be transvaginal to show a 13 weeks pregnancy? Or can it be a normal pelvic ultrasound

Depends: If your uterus is tilted backwards and your doctor wishes to do a detailed anatomy look specially at the nuchal translucency area, than a transvaginal ultrasound will give more details. If it is just to check heart beat or placenta or just of remeasuring growth than a normal pelvic ultrasound should suffice. Discuss with your doctor. Good Luck and have an easy pregnancy and childbirth. ...Read more

13 weeks pregnant, can I take canesten oral capsule?

No.: Do not take Clotrimazole in pregnancy (class c - animal side-effects noted). I cannot think why anyone would prescribe Clotrimazole in pregnancy - seek a second opinion for your condition. If you are talking about oral fluconazole, it may be taken as a one time 150 mg dose with appropriate counseling (fetal risks exist). Prefer topical treatment for yeast vaginitis! ...Read more
