|sparkly - Thu Jun 25, 2009 7:00 am||
i stopped microgynon 30 on 25th march 09, i began taking folic acid on 8th april 09, what i assume was my withdrawal bleed started on 26th april for a few days. my husband and i have been trying for a baby.
i took a pregnancy test about 4 weeks ago and it was negative. i took two yesterday (24th june 09) and both were positive! am delighted, but also apprehensive about the dangers in this early stage and also, when am i due?! please help, my appointment with doctor isn't until next wednesday! thanks

Whenever the last menstrual period is in question, the doctors determine estimated due date by ultrasound. This is the most accurate determinant so if you haven't had one, I would suggest you ask. Otherwise you can only calculate based on menstrual period dating. If that was a period you should be due about February 3 or 4.
Congratulations and good luck!
