Gestational Age based on IVF

hopeful DC - December 8

Dear Dr. Barry,

I had a question about how far along in my cycle I am and what my gestational age would be. My retrieval was on 11/21/05, the ET was on 11/26/05 (Day 5 blastocysts 1 AA)? Would the date of conception be considered as the retrieval date? Would you calculate gestional age the same way as they do with normal pregnancies? They always refer to the last missed period. How would I be able to adjust my dates so that they line up with the standard calculations? What would be my projected due date or how would I go about calculating this??

Thanks for your help.

Date of retrieval is analogous to date of conception. Pregnancy would be dated from 2 weeks earlier.

Thanks for the information. So the date of the last menstrual period in my case would be November 7th (November 21st retrieval)??

Thanks for the confirmation.
