How To Find Out The Age Of The Womb?
I want to ask. about gestational age, the thing is I don’t know how many months I was pregnant. I just gave birth and my child is only 7 months old, now I am pregnant again but don’t know how many months. because after I was postpartum I had no menstruation at all and I was in contact with my husband when my child was 3 months old. how old is my womb?

Gestational age can be determined through calculations from the first day of the last menstrual period (HPHT) and by conducting an ultrasound examination by a doctor.
If a pregnant woman has had sexual intercourse after the puerperium before the first menstruation occurs after childbirth, and coincides with the fertile period during ovulation (egg production), the chances of pregnancy are quite high.
In this case, to find out your gestational age, information is needed when your last childbirth occurred and when you last had sexual relations including the date and month. Without this information, it will be difficult to know the estimated age of your current pregnancy.
Another fairly easy way is by ultrasound examination (USG) to the nearest obstetrician. The examination can determine the age of your womb with a high enough accuracy. With an ultrasound examination, in addition to gestational age, also can be known also the estimated day of birth, fetal weight, placenta, and various fetal abnormalities that may be needed.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
