Exclamation When is my first menstral day if I spot before?

I usualy spot for several days before heavy/normal blood begins to flow. Since I'm trying to conceive, when do I know when my first day of my period is? Is it the day I start to spot or the day I begin a real flow? I'm confused.

It's the first day of your heavy flow. The spotting is actually the END of your previous cycle.

i was told the same i had spotting after i stopped my birth control an i was told it was not the beginning of my next cycle yet but it was for i ovulated 17 days after which was yesturday. i know this for i felt myself ovulate and i took an ovulation test. i think it varies from women to women. i would buy those tests and starting 10 days after you spot until day 20 days after and im sure youll find the day you ovulate. good luck.

CD1 is considered the first day of full flow - not spotting. Many women do spot a day or two before AF actually comes full force, but that is not to be considered CD1
