I had unprotected sex november 16, 2013 everytime i put that into a online pregnancy calculator under "date of conception" its says im 4 weeks. Why?
Easier calculation: Every pregnancy dating software is based on a 40 week pregnancy. Actually the pregnancy is not 40 weeks but 38 weeks. Not every women knows when they conceive but women know when their last menses occurs. Therefore the dating is from the last menses artificially adding 2 weeks to every pregnancy. ...Read more

Very unlikely: While it is technically possible to get pregnant on any day of the menstrual cycle, this is true because a person doesn't know when she ovulated. If your periods are regular, your fertility calculator should be quite accurate. Since you had sex, with contraception, outside of this time window your risk of pregnancy is very low, probably not more than 1%. ...Read more

Then they either assume that your periods are exactly 28 days apart or that you ovulate exactly 14 days before your next period. A better way is to use over the counter ovulation prediction kits which will help you know when exactly you are ovulating and time intercourse ...Read more

Who is more likely to be the dad. My 1st day of last period 30th jan. Slept with one guy 8th feb 2nd guy 14th feb? Online calculators say diff things
Who's father?: You won't be able to tell for sure until it's all over. That's the bottom line. If you have normal 27-28 day cycles, you probably ovulated feb 12-14th. Therefore the 2nd guy is most likely. However, sperm can last for quite a while sometimes. It is perfectly possible that the first guy is the father. You can't sort this out easily. Good luck. ...Read more
