A couple of days ago I started spotting w/ a brownish discharge. Today was the first day I wiped and got any type of red blood, but was mainly brownish after 3 wipes (sorry, tmi). Since I have started spotting I have not needed to wear a pad, tampon, liner, etc. but none the less it is still there. I am planning on using a Clearblue Fertility Monitor and I was thinking of making my first day today since ift was when I first saw blood, but i am not sur if this is correct. Could someone help to vreify this? Thanks

A new cycle begins the first day of full flow. You're right in that spotting doesn't count. Good luck. HTH!

They say to count your period with the first day of real blood flow as day one. I would go ahead and start the monitor tomorrow morning and it should start asking for the pee stick in 5-10 days from even if your period lasts a few extra days after you start the monitor, you can still test if it asks you to.
