If i'm due a month early could going into early labor change the conception date or is the conception date still be the same regardless of early birth?

If i'm due a month early could going into early labor change the conception date or is the conception date still be the same regardless of early birth?

Real date unchanged: The real conception date never changes, no matter what happens (it is the day the baby was created by a sperm entering an egg).

When should I stop birth control to get pregnant? I'm (trying) to schedule conception within a certain window of time.

3 months: There are no clear rules on when to stop pills before trying to get pregnant. At least one cycle probably makes sense to see if and when you may ovulate. Many people take pills to regulate their cycles in addition to contraception. Stop the pills, wait a month to see if you get a spontaneous period, then start trying after that period. If you don't get periods or are not regular, see your doctor. ...Read more

If I have had an abortion and then I decide to get on birth control will it affect my chances of conception when I want to get pregnant again ?

'No,' but it varies: Tthe generic answer is 'usually no.' One uncomplicated abortion per se is not associated with infertility, but sequelae to abortion(s) can be. Infertility after abortion is usually from adhesion/scarring in the uterine cavity or damage to fallopian tubes. Later gestation abortions and those with significant complications are at particular risk. Good wishes. ...Read more

Get Help: Assuming this is a question from a female (contrary to listing as Jeremy683, male): You should get help. It is not advisable to use oral contraceptives as "emergency contraception" and although you will not likely "die," it's not surprising that you do not feel right. OCP's can be used in emergency but the prescriber should be consulted prior to taking meds off-label. Call your doc for more info. ...Read more
