trying to get pregnant....

my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for over a year now. But i've quit "trying" worrying and stressing about it. But anyways my question is, when you start your period do you start counting on the day of or the day after you start to know how long your cycle is? I'm trying to look up info on it, and not having any luck.

  • The first day of your period is the day you have blood. If you start to spot at night that doesn't count, the next day would be day 1.

  • I'm pretty sure you start the first day of your period - so if you get your period on the 18th, the 18th is day 1. Try this website - it worked for me and was much easier than counting:
