Sorry this is a long one. Please don’t mention a DNA as I already know that I will need to do that when the Baby is born I’m just looking for reassurance.
So, I had sex with a guy I was seeing from the beginning of august all through to September. We had a fall out and I stupidly slept with somebody else on the 12th September and my period was due on the 16th September. I took a test on the 17th September at around midnight so technically 4 days after sleeping with the other guy as I felt funny and it was positive. On the 18th September the next day I had a clear blue 2-3 weeks pregnant result. All my scans have dated me to conception being the 6th September. I slept with the guy I was seeing on the 3rd and 4th of September. Please help me. Who is more likely to be the father?

I would say it’s most likely the first blokes baby with those dates.

The first man. For it to have been the second man you would have ovulated the day before sex with him at the very earliest to have conceived with him so no way would you have had a 2-3 weeks on the 17th as you would have been 6dpo if that was the case max.

also based on when your period was due it’s man 1 anyway.

It will be the first guy, purely because you wouldn't get a positive on a pregnancy test until 8-9 days after sex at the absolute earliest, and I mean the absolute earliest. If you got a positive 4 days after having sex with the second guy, it's not his baby.

Agree, the first guy.

I'm also going with the first guy. 4 days after sex and get a positive does not seem plausible at all.

Definitely the first guy. There’s no way you could have got a positive test 4 days after sex, definitely no chance of enough hcg to get 2-3 weeks.

Odds are it's the first guy. Takes a good few days for the egg to travel down to the uterus, get implanted and trigger the hormone surge that gets picked up by the test. You would not test positive 4 days after sex.

It's the first guys I'd say.

You can't have sex and get a positive pregnancy test in the space of 4 days. you just can't.
