In the afternoon, I want to ask my wife’s gestational age. Last menses on May 7-May 15. Then we had sex on the 8th of June. My wife has done the test 3 times and the results are positive. How many weeks has my wife been pregnant? Thank you

Hi Agung,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

One of the ways to determine gestational age is by using the HPHT benchmark (the first day of the last menstruation). If your wife's last menstrual period before sexual intercourse started on May 7, 2018, this means that her current gestational age is:

Gestational age = today's date - HPHT date
Gestational age = July 21 2018 - May 7 2018
Gestational age = 60 days = 8-9 weeks

However, it seems that this determination of gestational age needs to be confirmed again by a more objective examination, namely by ultrasound. Through this examination, it can also be ascertained whether it is true that your wife is pregnant or not. Because, without wanting to undermine your and your wife's expectations, a positive testpack result may still occur in women who are not pregnant, for example due to improper implementation of the test pack or due to contaminated urine samples used.

With an ultrasound examination, pregnancy can be detected early, along with the estimated gestational age. In this examination, the gestational age is estimated by calculating the size of the gestational sac or also the size of the fetus (if it is large enough). Therefore, try to get your wife to see a specialist in obstetrics and gynecology directly ..

I hope this helps.
