The Difference In The Age Of The Womb With Ultrasound From Different Countries?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, I have USG in the UK for 12 weeks but the USG results are still 8w2d, is that normal? When consulting with midwives, midwives only said the baby was good, that’s all, without explaining anything else. Then does my period with a cycle of 40 and above also affect? I’m worried, because the nausea, my vomiting is quite severe. Thanks.
Hello Ms. Eka! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Congratulations on your pregnancy.
Ultrasound examination in the first trimester is indeed important to ensure pregnancy, determine the position of the fetus, and know the age of pregnancy accurately. However, it should be noted that the ultrasound examination is a test that is very operator dependent. That is, the more expert the person conducting the examination, the more accurate the results given. In this case, the midwife is not only not an expert for USG examination, but the midwife is also not competent to carry out this examination. To get accurate examination results, you should check with your obstetrician. Moreover, now you have complaints about your pregnancy. The obstetrician will examine you directly to find out your condition and your pregnancy. The doctor will give medication or action if needed. A cycle of more than 40 days will certainly affect the calculation of gestational age, ovulation or egg release from the ovaries occurs 2 weeks before the next menstruation. If your cycle is 40 days, ovulation and fertilization occur 26 days from the first day of your last menstruation. If the mother's cycle is 28 days, ovulation and fertilization occur 14 days from the first day of the last menstruation. An ultrasound examination in the first trimester will show a more accurate gestational age of your mother, the doctor will explain more deeply about this based on the results of the USG later.
That's all information from me. Hope it helps and hopefully always healthy.
