When is the 1st day?

On Monday afternoon, I started spotting. Since then, I have only been spotting. Since today is the 5th day of spotting and I am sure It is going to get heavy sometime over the weekend, which day would be considered day one? Is the first day of spotting or is it the first day of a heavy flow?

  • The first day of your period is considered by the medical profession (and any charting websites and books you come across) as the first day of period flow, so the first day you need a pad or a tampon. Spotting is just spotting, no matter when in your cycle it occurs.
