## What is my due date based on conception date?

In cases where the date of conception is known precisely, such as with in vitro fertilization, the EDD is calculated by adding 266 days to the date of conception.

**Does implantation affect gestational age?**

Implantation timing is a major determinant of fetal size at 10-14 weeks and largely explains the variation in estimates of GA in the first trimester derived from embryonic or fetal CRL.

## Can gestational age be off by 2 weeks?
