Afternoon . I want to ask about when the fertilization process occurred during pregnancy.. my son is now 6 months old born on 07 October last year.. as far as I remember my last period was January 1 when I checked with the doctor on 22 February my womb was 6 weeks old but when I checked with another doctor, which is May 23rd, my pregnancy is already 5 months.. I’m confused about when to start getting pregnant? And about what date the fertilization process occurred, thank you

Hi Lanti,

To determine gestational age, it can be calculated using HPMT (the first day of the last menstrual period, not the last day of the last menstruation), or it can also be done using ultrasound. HPMT is used if the menstrual cycle is normal, while for pregnant women who previously had an abnormal menstrual cycle, an ultrasound examination can be performed to calculate gestational age more accurately.

I catch what you are asking about is your child's pregnancy which is now 6 months old or last year's pregnancy. If you assume your HPMT is January 1 and your menstrual cycle is 28 days, then your estimated birth date is October 8th. This birth estimate is based on 40 weeks of gestation. However, it should be noted that normal delivery can occur at any time when they are full term (37-40 weeks) and only a few pregnant women experience delivery on the due date. If you look at your due date as well as your child's birthday, then your labor time is almost 40 weeks. This is still within normal limits.

Back to your question, to determine when to get pregnant and also the date of conception, this is very difficult to ascertain and all calculations both gestational age and due date are only "estimates / estimates" obtained from calculations and examinations. In general, fertilization is calculated 2 weeks after the HPMT, but this is only an estimate. Starting to get pregnant or fertilization can only be ascertained if fertilization is carried out outside the uterus, namely in the IVF program.
