Sometimes a double getaway happens and a pregnancy appears, what now? How do I know who my child’s father is? The fact is, when you have intercourse in the fertile period (it usually lasts about seven days) you cannot be absolutely sure who the baby’s father is. However, some calculations can be done to give a percentage of possibility.
The day of conception is usually the most fertile day, but a pregnancy can also happen if the woman has had intercourse up to three days before ovulation . The trick to knowing who the baby’s father is is to calculate when the most fertile day would be and analyze when the sexual intercourse took place.
How to Know the Most Fertile Day
Let’s talk about numbers, for example, a regulated 28-day cycle has ovulation on the 14th day of the cycle, with a fertile period from the 11th to the 17th day of the cycle . The day with the most mucus and the most slippery is certainly the day you ovulated. It is assumed that if the man who had intercourse 3 days before or 2 after ovulation, there is a possibility of being the father.
To know the exact day of ovulation in unregulated cycles, you should check the mucus but if you are the forgotten type, the best thing is to see the dates of your previous periods, to give you an idea of when your period was fertile. However, there are extreme cases in which the relationship happens on straight days, with one boy today and with another tomorrow, so that way, it is not possible to know precisely by the dates and calculations only. If the woman has had intercourse over a long period of time , the calculation is easier, the problem really lies when the intercourse took place in very close days, be it with one, two or more partners.
If you want to track your menstrual cycle and know when you are ovulating, follow up on a mobile menstrual app, such as APP Paula. In conjunction with the application, use ovulation tests that will indicate whether ovulation is approaching, whether it is happening or whether it has already ended.

Ultrasound can you find out who the father is?
No, but ultrasound serves as a great ally at these times to know on what date the baby was conceived. This exam, if done until the 10th week of pregnancy , can give a more correct date that the pregnancy may have happened. When done before, the better and more accurate the calculation.
The ultrasound will give the closest possible date of conception, but we must remember that the DPP (expected date for delivery) is counted from the first day of the menstrual cycle and not when the woman became fertile.
In extreme cases, a DNA test is recommended to find out who the father is, the famous paternity test. These exams have become more popular every day and can be done through SUS as long as you open a paternity investigation process before the courts.
To find out who the father is, DNA can be done in private clinics as well, the value starts from R $ 500 to 1,000 depending on the number of people involved in the exam. The collection can be done after the baby is born and can be compared with father, siblings and material such as hair and saliva for example.
The simplest way to find out who the baby’s father is is calculus, but some cases resolve easily after the baby is born. Some children are so similar to their parents that they dispense with any DNA and parenting concerns, but it is still up to the man to register and recognize the baby as a child.
We must remember that the probable father of the child, should help the pregnant woman during the pregnancy with food , for that, one must enter into a process of pension to the pregnant woman. He must help with the pension to cover expenses such as exams, medications, special food, medical assistance in addition to the baby’s layette. For this pension, making sure who the child’s father is is very important! If the father does not want to or is able to help with the pension, family members may be in charge of paying for the pension.
The responsibility usually falls on the woman when the pregnancy appears, but I must remember that the mutual desire to have relationships can result in a baby , and that a child must be loved and cared for by the parents and not by the mother alone. Real men support women, regardless of circumstances. Son is forever and no matter how many times it comes at the wrong time, there is no better thing in someone’s life.
I judge children and strength in the wig!
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
