I had sex January 8th with my fiance before he deployed. I had a February period when I should have and a March period when I should have. However, I missed April's and I was having severe abdominal pains so I went to the local E.R. and they did an U/S and pelvic exam. They came back saying I was 6 weeks pregnant, they explained that my periods in February and March more than likely were something to do with fertilization. If that were the case I would be 14-16 weeks pregnant. Could there be a slow development of the fetus or SOMETHING to explain this? I know for a fact the last time I had sex and the time lines do not match up. What could explain this?

Complications during Pregnancy Answer A11358
Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. There’s a possibility of the March period actually being an implantation bleeding. This can lead to the possible explanation of the 6 weeks pregnancy. The chances of your foetus actually being 14-16 weeks is very less as such a big disparity of 10 weeks in early pregnancy usually leads to a non-viability of the foetus and an early miscarriage. Please do consult your gynaecologist for the same.

I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
