This study looked at a recently published systematic review to examine the potential for using the first date of the woman’s last menstrual period (LMP) as a way to estimate gestational age (GA) in order to establish eligibility for medical abortion. The data support the idea that LMP may be an accurate metric for estimating GA, and that this method is promising and should be further investigated.
