Hi sofie, the answer to your question depends on what your Dr. considers your first day. My Dr. told me that cd1 is the minute I see blood, even if it's just a little spot, that would be my day 1. My girlfriend on the other hand says her day one is when it fully shows up. The best thing to do, is to call your Dr. and just mention you spotted yesturday and it came today...let him decide when your on cd1. But don't wait to long to call, in case he needs to start seeing you by cd3. Good Luck-baby dust to you.... I'm on my 3 IUI. I do ever other with injections. As of today I'm on my 2ww. All the best!

i agree with lifequest on this. but most docs consider cd1 the first day of full flow and not spotting so i would just say to call your doc and ask them about it.

My doctor says that CD1 is when AF starts as "flow"

I would call your doctor, each one has a different theory! Mine says first day of flow too, BUT if the flow starts after 6:00pm, then it is considered the next day. So confusing eh!
