Yesterday (day 30) I had some red/pink spotting when I probed my vagina. It has not started to flow regularly yet. So is yesterday considered day 1, or will day 1 be the same day it flows and needs products? It's so light I don't even have a pad or tampon on.
I'm pretty regularly around day 30 or 31, so I'm not late.
I usually count from the first day of proper blood. Even if thats quite light or it starts at the end of the day. It doesn't really matter - as long as you keep it consistent for you whether you start counting when you start spotting or have more blood.
That's when I start counting too - when it's red and flowin'.
If I start counting from the first spotting, that's day 30. If I count from the first flow, that's day 33. A difference of 4 days could make a big difference when you're ovulating. I was pretty stressed this month, so I'm guessing that's what contributed.
Guess I'll be playing it real safe this coming month. Thanks for your response!
