Who will the father of my baby be after having unprotected sex with two different men a day apart during my ovulation period.
I'm trying to determine who the father of my baby is. I am 30 weeks preg, and my date of concep was 8/21/11, I had sex with 2. Men within 3 days. My ex and my fiance. Both ejaculated inside me, but I stood up right after with my ex, who I had sex with
Since you had unprotected sex with two different people only a day apart it is virtually impossible to determine who the father is. Actually you had semen from both men inside of you so the father is the man who's sperm penetrated the egg faster, and factors such as when ovulation occurred play a role. You standing up after sex with your ex does not eliminate all he sperm, so his is an effective method.
Honestly you have to wait until the baby is born to determine paternity. Unless you had an amniocentesis in the early part of your pregnancy and the specimen was saved, then dna testing can be done this way prior to birth.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Each putative father may cover the cost of his own test & share the cost of your child's test. ...Read more
