Using the Last Menstrual Period (LMP) is the most accurate way to calculate a due date. Is this fact or fiction?

This is fiction. Using the LMP is only accurate if a woman ovulates/conceives on or near day 14 of her cycle. Ironically, only 12% of women ovulate near day 14. Calculating a due date based on the date of ovulation/conception is the most accurate way.

Fiction. Some people have really long cycles but LP could still only be 10-14 days.

I'd think that knowing exactly when you ovulated would be the more exact way to calculate due date
