Conception confusion
I got my normal period around the 23rd of june. Then had a VERY heavy, unexpected, clotting period, around the 5th or 9th of july. Had unprotected sex on the 14th and 15th. Then again on the 4th of august. Pregnant now.Which date is most likely the date the baby was conceived? Or was conception before the heavy period?

It is going to be hard to tell from your periods when conception was. A scan would give you the most accurate estimate.
