To calculate the expected date of deliver, seven days are added to the first day of LMP and then nine months are added to this date. For example, if the LMP was on 2-2-2009, the EDD will be on 9-11-2009. If the LMP was 27-10-2008, the EDD will be 3-8-2009. This method of esti- mating EDD is known as the Naegele’s rule. This rule can also be applied by adding seven days to the first day of LMP, subtracting three months and then adding one year to this. The rule should be used to measure the duration of preg- nancy, only if the patient had been having regular menstrual
cycles previously.
