Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

We calculate the expected date of delivery( EDOD) from the last menstrual periods ( LMP). If your last menstrual period was on 17th March then the EDOD should be 24th November ( LMP+ 7 DAYS- 3 MONTHS). Pregnancy occurs only during the time of ovulation. Ovulation is the release of a single, mature egg from a follicle that developed in the ovary. It usually occurs regularly, around day 14 of a 28-day menstrual cycle. So you should have conceived around 30th March (+/- 2 days).

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
