How To Calculate Gestational Age?
Why is the gestational age calculated from the first time the last period? Is there an explanation scientifically?
A good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pregnancy calculation is done since the first day of last menstruation because at this time it is estimated that there will be a fertile period in which the release of mature eggs and the formation of new eggs may not trigger the next menstruation because the new eggs are fertilized with sperm so that this will be one way to calculate gestational age, but for other things a calculation should be done like
Ultrasound, especially in the first trimester Fundal height is to measure the size of the uterus. This will usually be examined several things so that you can find the right age for pregnancy but based on the most appropriate research is when calculating with USG in trimester 1 by looking at the size of the egg sac
Thus the information we can convey. Thanks.
