EDD: Unveiling the Medical Full Form and Its Implication

What Does EDD Stand For?

In the realm of pregnancy, EDD, or the Estimated Date of Delivery, is an essential term. It’s a seemingly complex medical acronym that actually has a significant impact on every pregnancy.

The EDD is the predicted date when a pregnant woman is expected to give birth. It’s usually derived from the woman’s Last Menstrual Period (LMP), Ultrasound (USG) results, or the Clinical Gestational Age (CGA).

To elaborate:

  • EDD by LMP: This estimates the EDD based on the first day of the woman’s last menstrual cycle, assuming a regular 28-day cycle.
  • EDD by USG: The ultrasound method gives a more accurate EDD, particularly when done early in pregnancy, by measuring the fetus to determine gestational age.
  • EDD by CGA: This method uses physical signs in the woman, like uterine size, to estimate the EDD.
