1st date of conception: 16th of September
Last had sex: between the 19th-25th of August
Had sex: 22nd of September

Is it possible that my conception date is wrong? Am i pregnant from the time I sex between 19th-25th of August or the 22nd of September. I know my conception date can't be wrong - or can it? Midwives up here are pretty goddamn accurate. ARGH.

No one can tell you conception date because no one knows. Speed can live up to 72 hrs. And the day you ovulate can change from month to month. So doctors take the first day of your last period for a guess as to how far along you are and when you are due.

You conceived sometime between the 19th of August & the 22 of september.

As the others have said, it's not an exact science, because there is absolutely no way of knowing for sure when conception occurred. It's not like your body jumped up and said "YOU'VE CONCEIVED"!!! lol

That's why ANY dates are just estimated.

I agree with Sarah, no one can tell you the date you conceived. Your due date is counted 40 weeks from the start of your last period, that's why the due date can be out by a couple of weeks.
