What do you consider the first day of your period?  I had brown spotting on sunday, nothing on monday and a heavy flow on Tue. and Wed. so would I count day 1 as sunday or tuesday?  I am tring to figure out my O days.

I had a similar period before I conceived and my dr counted from the first day of flow.  My ultrasound dates also matched up with this.  Good Luck!

Tuesday. You always count the first day of active flow as day 1.

i would say Tuesday - i believe it's the actual start of the flow and not spotting, but anyone feel free to correct me if i'm wrong.

Tuesday, you always count day one as the first day you need a pad/tampon.

Good question, I've been driving myself crazy trying to figure out what day 1 actually was!  I love this message board, it makes me feel like everything I'm going through is normal and other women are going nuts trying to figure everything out, too!!  :)

I have the same problem.  I started on the sunday and then it stopped Monday evening. Nothing on Tuesday and then it started again on Wednesday.  So what will be my first day?

If you had flow Sunday, I would count that as CD1. Sometimes my AF is like that too, but I always count first day of flow as day 1.

I have the same issue. My husband and I have been ttc for 3 months and still nothing.  I have been off the birth control patch since february and I returned to normal cycles right away.  After 3 normal cycles, it changed from 28 days, to 24, to 24, to 30, and now again I am spotting, but no real flow. I know I am not pregnant becuase I took a hpt.  I am glad to see that I am not alone.  Perhaps, my timing was off...

I ovulated on July 26th and started spotting brown and then red blood on August 7th - today (still spotting) not a lot on pad just after going to the bathroom. Temps are at 97.8 Do u guys think it's a actual period or something else? I know that sounds wierd but I've never had this happen before. Thanks.
