Pregnant - conception date

I am Pregnant. I had sex on Saturday (21 June) and again on Monday (23 June). I took a morning after pill on the Sunday (22 June). My first day of the last menstrual cycle was the 9th of June. When was the conception date? Saturday or Monday???

It isn't possible to tell exactly with the two dates being so close. The scan is not accurate to within 2 days.

Hi Veronica,

Well your pregnant what does it matter if conception was on the 21st or 23rd of June? Except maybe if it was with 2 different partners????? Is this why you are so frantic to figure out the conception date??

Good Luck girl

My menstrual cycle is 6 - 7 days. I did go for a sonar on the 30th of July. At that time, the sonar shown that the baby was perfect and had a perfect heart beat. Also, the sonar shown that the baby was 7 weeks and 2 days, which means according to that, the conception date was the Monday the 23rd. How accurate is a sonar??? Do they measure the baby and determine then?Will the morning after pill destroy the Saturday' s sperms?

Unfortunately its anybodys guess. If you had unprotected sex both times then the sperm is able to stay alive up to 5 days so it could have been either day. The sonar dating is not accurate enough to determine a difference of 2 days.

How long is your menstrual cycle? I think conception might have taken place on the 23rd. i sincerely hope your baby is ok. When did you find out you are pregnant? Please go for a sonar that would be more accurate
