Question: I recently found out i am pregnant, my EDD is the 14th March 2011. My last
proper period of 5 days was the 21st May 2010 which it has been for the last several
months, i had taken the morning after pill the end of May and came on my period for
two days on the 3rd June 2010. My EDD is no where near two weeks to what they work
it back to, will the EDD be correct? E. (UK)
Answer: The calculated EDD would put your last period at around 7th of June 2010. Working on the premise of a 28-30 day cycle, which you hinted at; it puts your conception date around 21st of June 2010, give or take a couple of days either way. Seeing as it is still relatively early in pregnancy, it is very unlikely there is a significant error in the measurements of the fetus and therefore the calculated EDD. It appears to me therefore that the period you had on the 3rd of June was in fact a ‘proper period’ and that is, in fact, your last true LMP. The morning-after pill you took end of May appears to be a red herring and has no relevance in this development. You conceived a good three weeks after.

Last time I had to have a caesarean because the baby went into distress. I want as much info as possible about the safety of vaginal delivery. Thanks. G. E. (UK)
