What is a pregnancy calculator?
It is a calculator that allows you to enter the first date of your last period and the average length of your menstrual cycle. The calculator takes that date and calculates how many weeks are you pregnant. This is an easy and private way to answer questions you might have about how many weeks of pregnancy you have left, which means you can plan for all the key milestones of your pregnancy.
How does the pregnancy calculator estimate these data?
It combines two factors; the first date of your last period and the average length of your menstrual cycle to calculate the likely date you conceived. Your menstrual cycle typically includes five days each month when you have a chance of conception. Those are the days you ovulate. For the most part, that is around twelve to sixteen days before you have your period. Using that information, the pregnancy calculator can calculate how far along in your pregnancy you are. Once you know that it is also easy to calculate your likely due date and how many weeks of pregnancy you have left.
Let’s look at an example of how the pregnancy calculator works:
You enter the first day of your last period. Let’s say that date was June 30, 2016. Then you enter an average length of your menstrual cycle of twenty-eight days. The calculator will project forward and give you a due date of April 6, 2017. On August 10, 2016 the pregnancy calculator will inform you that you are five weeks and six days pregnant and that there are thirty-four weeks left in your pregnancy. With that information you can begin to plan for your pregnancy. You will know when your second and third trimesters will begin. You will be able to plan for all the usual benchmarks of pregnancy.
