i started spooting light brownish jan 21st did not need to wear anything. on jan 25 i got cramps and started bleeding like a period , today i am hardly bleeding at all i iam trying to predict when my next fertile days are would you say my period started the 21st or the 25th?

Hi pcad. I would go with the 25th. I believe day 1 would be the day you see red blood. I get light brownish spotting before hand too.

thank you wish me lots of luck

hi pcad - my doc always tells me the first sight of blood, whether it is spotting or a heavy flow.

It's interesting because my RE says the first day of FULL-FLOW, and NOT spotting. I guess it depends on the doctor? I always go with full flow to count day 1. Hope it all works out for you! Smiles and Babydust... T

I heard 1st full day of steady bleeding, as opposed to random spotting. But just in case, you might want to go by the earliest day anyway.

My doc says 1st day of full bleeding

my RE says a flow...not spotting...

i have experiece this before but my doctor told me that the first day of your heavy flow is your first day


slowpoke01 - February 7

the first day that you have full red flow is your 1st day. most docs dont count spotting as 1st day. good luck.
