Pregnant but no periods how is it dated?

hi...I'm just musing reallly!

Had my implant out July 5th

No period yet (and didn't have one while on implant)

I had the EWCM (I think) on July 17-19ish and we did plenty of SWI on the off chance smile plus it's fun smile but we have been anyway through the whole month not just those days (honeymoon!)

Today I'm feeling very tired (but that could be just cos I didn't sleep well last night) and I have a weird dull lower stomach pain like I've pulled a muscle.

So presuming that today is exactly 2 weeks since EWCM and no period yet and there is a teeny tiny don't-get-your-hopes-up chance of pregnancy how would the doctors date the pregnancy ?

As I said... just really wondering out loud! Not taken a test yet as have no idea if my period is late or even if it's due or what!!

Hi - Never been Pg so not speaking from experience but they would probably go from the date your implant came out and treat that as day 1 as they normally would treat the first day of your period.

They'd probably refer you for a date scan too just to be sure.

Ah yes that would be a good start I suppose! I wonder when my period should be due? I've literally no idea so I don't know when to test and I'm actually scared to test as a negative would ruin my fantasy that I may be pregnant! Ha

I came off the pill in September and my first period was 35 days later. I'm not sure how the implant works but i'd give it 6 weeks at least.

My friend had her inplant out and never had a period, she got pregnant and they told her on her dating scan how far gone she was, then when she got to 20weeks and had her scan they realised that they were out slightly so she ended up being further gone than she thought!! They will be able to tell on a scan! Good luck, i hope you are!

Ohh I'd be so excited if I was... suppose chances are slim tho so soon after removal..

Your 12 week scan is a dating scan. If you get pg you book in with the mw who will ask about your last period. If you have no last period they use other measures as your date, but basically your scan will say how far you are. I lost three weeks of my pregnancy this way!

i came off the pill at the beginning of last February, did the deed on valentines day and now have a 9 month old DS smile so anything is possible, it's amazing how quick your body kicks into action. And my first symptoms were cramps from 2nd week, but i didn't test positive until the 3rd week, went on for weeks, and by 6 weeks my boobs had exploded and i had to go out bra shopping!
