Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
when you get online let me know the following:
1) When was the first day of your last normal period.
2) How many days between periods for you.
3) Any contraceptive used with either
thanks for the additional information.
So a 28 day cycle means conception would have been on or about the 14th of OCT.
a 30 day cycle means coception would have occured on or about the 16th of OCT.
both of these days would have been prior to intercourse with man B..suggesting man A is the baby's father.
we know that sperm can live in the female genital tract for several days and when ovulation occurs that's when conception occurs...not neccessarily the day you had sex.
now, that said, because we are smack dab in the middle it's possible you could have ovulated a few days later and that man B is the father.
Unfortunately the dates are so close we have to lean towards man A, but it could also be man B and the only way to know for sure is a DNA swab after the baby is born for paternity testing.
yes, that will help narrow it down.
early ultrasounds are usually plus/minus 3 days
so when you have the actual due date from the ultrasound that will help.
I would not recommend it for paternity testing
there are risks associated with CVS and amnio that, in my opinion, are not justifiable for paternity testing.
now, if you choose to do that for chromosomal testing that would be something that could potentially be added to the testing.
the sample can analyze the chromosomes, but they should also be able to run DNA sequencing on the material.
usually 12-14 weeks.
Done by high risk Ob/gyn doctors called MFMs.
you would need to ask for a referral.
Usually these tests are reserved for women where the risk of down's syndrome or another type of chromosomal abnormality is suspected....normally in older women.
So. If you talk about this with your doctor he/she may agree for the indication of paternity testing (usually with an amnio rather than CVS), but I think that is quite unlikely for the reason I mentioned previously.

I have heard of this test.
I do not know where it is done...meaning I don't know where I would send my patients to have it done.
I do believe the technology exists to make this a promising test though.
you might look at this link...
they should be able to help you locate a lab that can do that test for you...in your area.
looks rather expensive however.
