I had my last period on the first week of March. On March 15th I had protected sex with guy A. He was a virgin so I took the precaution of using 2 films of N-9. I was too drunk to remember with absolute certainty if there was any leaking from the condom, but usually when someone ejaculates inside I get a terrible itch that lasts a few hours and I don't remember any that day when I drove back home the same night. Later on March 23rd I had unprotected sex with guy B. On April 6th I had light bleeding for two days, but not enough to fill a tampon. I suspect this was implantation bleeding. On April 21st I went to the ER and they confirmed I was pregnant and an ultrasound put the embryo as 6 weeks old. On the 23rd the OBGYN confirmed the 6 weeks age and said I ovulated late, making guy B the father. So far the ultrasound age has been consistent with the age given by the first ultrasounds. Is there a possibility that guy A could be the father? Should I spend money on a DNA test once the baby is born?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The quantity of healthy sperm is more in a fresh ejaculation than in semen or pre-cum mixed with spermicidal present in condom. It is difficult to say who would have fathered the baby if there was no period in between your two different sexual encounters. If fertile mucus had been present at time of intercourse, sperms can stay alive for 5-7 days and fertilize the egg upon ovulation. After ovulation, egg has only 24-48 hours to get fertilized. The intercourse during your peak fertile days or closer to your ovulation day is likely to result in pregnancy. If your last periods were normal and if your due date (completion of 40 weeks of gestation) is known, then you can count back to know your probable conception date and current gestational age. If your periods are regular, you can also calculate your ovulation date and current gestational age based on the menstrual cycle length and last period date. Ultrasound scan done for dating can also help with knowing your probable conception date. The exact results can only be made out after a Paternity test. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further assistance and clarification.
Take care.
