This pregnancy calculator uses the first day of the menstrual cycle and its average length to determine the probable ovulation date, along with the fertility window – date which offer information on the likely conception date, as well as the estimated gestational age and due date.

For the purpose of this calculator, the pregnancy definition used is the development of an embryo in a woman’s uterus started through fertilization of an egg and that culminates with birth.

In the event of fertilization occurring during ovulation or on one of the dates in the fetility window, the gestational age of the resulting pregnancy age is counted from the first day of the last menstrual cycle.

Pregnancies are divided into three trimester periods. The first trimester represents the period between the first and fourteenth week and follows the development of the embryo into a fetus.

The second trimester represents the period between the fourteenth week and the twenty-seventh week, continues the development of the fetus.

The third trimester represents the period between the twenty-seventh week and the birth date, which is estimated at 266 days from conception or 40 weeks from first day of the last menstrual period.

This tool also offers a detailed, week by week account of the developments in pregnancy, depending on the current week resulted in the calculation.
