cycle days

Sorry I posted this un TTC but only got one answer....
I am just wondering...if you start spotting for a few days before you actually start bleeding, do you count the first day of spotting as cycle day 1 or do you wait until it's real blood? Thanks

  • I got this from med help I had this same question too....

    By "convention", the first day of any bleeding (including spotting) is considered to be the first day of the cycle.

  • First day of full red blood is what most dr and fertility websites say to go by.
