Yes, when predicting the length of a pregnancy, it's counted from conception, which is when the fertilized egg implanted in the uterus. This is anywhere from 1 to 7 days after intercourse, assuming this lines up with ovulation.

Yes, Conception is the formation of a viable zygote by the union of the male sperm and female ovum; fertilization.

When does first week of pregnancy starts?

This can be confusing! The first week of pregnancy is actually considered to be the day of your last menstrual period, before you are technically even pregnant! You are actually two weeks pregnant when conception occurs, and generally four weeks pregnant before you can get a positive pregnancy test!

You started your period the day after conception is there still a possibility of pregnancy?

The day after conception or the day after sex? I know they may sound the same but they are very different. Conception would mean you know you got pregnant that very day. If you had sex and had a period the next day chances are good that you are not pregnant. If after 2 weeks you have any concerns that you could be pregnant, take a test or see your doctor. Some women have normal pregnancies and have their period every month. But most women are not ovulating (fertile) the day before they start their period. Conception normally occurs mid cycle, day 13 or 14 in a 28 day cycle.

Conception means: fertilization; inception of pregnancy....So when you say "the day after conception" you started're saying you then you would be pregnant. Did you mean to ask the question differently? Did you mean that after your period ended you started having sex? Not too sure of your question; please clarify.

Can cramping the day of conception mean you are pregnant?

"Conception" means you're pregnant. Do you mean day of ovulation? Actually, some women (myself included) may have cramps after intercourse. This usually only happens between the time you ovulate and your period starts (so, if you have a 28 day cycle, post-coital cramps will occur between days 14 and 28 of your cycle). I remember I got these terrible cramps after having sex, and I thought the same thing. But I did a bit of Googling, and it turns out post-coital cramps happen to a few women. Cramps usually happen after sex because sex and orgasm can cause uterine contractions.

What day does conception occur?

Conception would occur the day that the act of sexual intercourse resulted in an egg being fertilized with semen. In other words, the day that the sexual activity took place that resulted in pregnancy. If a woman had sex with a man once, and went about her life, and found out a month later that she were pregnant, the day she had sex with the man is the day of conception for the baby in her womb.
