U/s on 1/20/14 gave measurement of 11w4d measuring the fetus at 4.8 cm. Could 11/25/13 be conception date? What is the accurate conception date?
11/14/13: Based on the information you provided, the 'average' date of conception would be appx 11/14/13. While 11/25 could be the conception date, it's highly unlikely. Most first trimester ultrasounds are the most accurate ultrasound we have for dating a pregnancy. Typically standard deviation of error is +/- 5 days. Which would be as early as 11/9 or as late as 11/19. Thus, 11/25 is an outlier. ...Read more

Fundal uterine fibroid not responding to hormone treatment (not shrinking)
- injections 6months - concerns of sarcoma - will sarcoma show on MRI?
Very very unlikely: Unfortunately gynecological oncologists and radiologists have not found an accurate imaging technique to diagnose a uterine sarcoma which is very unlikely to "show on MRI". The lack of response of "your fundal uterine fibroids to hormone treatment" is not a reliable sign either. Consult an experienced gynecologist about uterine fibroid biopsy or a laparoscopic myomectomy if you remain "concerned" ...Read more
