Effects Of Miscalculating HPHT On Fetal Birth?
Afternoon, I want to ask whether the hpht calculation has an effect on ultrasound results. The nurse in the clinic where I checked incorrectly recorded and gave information to the spog doctor, I hpht on 21 June 2019 but recorded 12 June 2019 so my HPL fell on 18 March 2020 this, I just checked the data because until now I haven’t contracted or any signs of childbirth, but lastly, the doctor said that the ari2 is old and if it hasn’t been born on March 18, the amniotic fluid will be green, so there is a risk of fetal poisoning … Please enlighten me ..Thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
There are 2 ways to determine the estimated birth day (HPL), namely:
1. Calculate using HPHT, which is the first day of menstruation in the last menstrual cycle. This method is best used if your menstrual period is normal and regular in at least the last 6 cycles. In addition, it must be ensured that pregnant women really remember the date of the HPHT.
2. Calculate using an ultrasound examination. This method is best used if the examination is done in early pregnancy, which is the longest at 12 weeks gestational age. In addition, examination results are also more accurate if carried out by more experienced experts. Calculations in this way are not affected by the date of the LHT.
If your HPHT is June 21, 2019, then your HPL is March 28, 2020, if you calculated using the HPHT. In connection with the latest USG results, it is recommended that you consult immediately with the obstetrician in charge for re-examination.
Thus hopefully useful.
