The Abortion Date Calculator helps estimate the best timeframe for an abortion based on the gestational age. It calculates the potential date of conception and provides an estimated range for when an abortion can be performed, considering legal and medical guidelines.

## Formula of Abortion Date Calculator

To calculate the abortion date, you need to determine the gestational age and then subtract it from the current date. Here is the basic formula:

Determine the gestational age: Gestational age is typically measured from the first day of the last menstrual period (LMP). It is usually expressed in weeks.

Subtract the gestational age from the current date: This gives you the date of conception, which can help in estimating the abortion date.

Formula

Let:

- LMP be the first day of the last menstrual period.
- GA be the gestational age in weeks.
- CD be the current date.

The date of conception (DC) can be calculate as:

DC = CD - (GA * 7 days)

To find the abortion date (AD), which is typically perform within a specific range of weeks (for example, up to 12 weeks in some places):

AD = LMP + (Maximum Weeks Allowed * 7 days)

## Pre-Calculated Values for Common Searches

Here is a table with pre-calculated values for common gestational ages and maximum weeks allowed for abortion. This can help you find the information quickly without having to do the calculations yourself.

Last Menstrual Period (LMP) | Gestational Age (GA) in Weeks | Date of Conception (DC) | Maximum Weeks Allowed | Estimated Abortion Date (AD) |
---|---|---|---|---|

January 1, 2024 | 4 weeks | January 29, 2024 | 12 weeks | April 1, 2024 |

February 1, 2024 | 6 weeks | March 15, 2024 | 12 weeks | May 1, 2024 |

March 1, 2024 | 8 weeks | April 26, 2024 | 12 weeks | June 1, 2024 |

## Example of Abortion Date Calculator

Let us go through an example to see how this calculation works in practice.

Suppose the first day of the last menstrual period (LMP) was March 1, 2024. The current date (CD) is June 1, 2024. The gestational age (GA) is 13 weeks.

- Calculate the date of conception (DC): DC = CD - (GA * 7 days) DC = June 1, 2024 - (13 * 7 days) DC = March 1, 2024
- Calculate the abortion date (AD), assuming the maximum weeks allowed is 12 weeks: AD = LMP + (Maximum Weeks Allowed * 7 days) AD = March 1, 2024 + (12 * 7 days) AD = May 24, 2024
