When Does Period Start?

Usually the day before my period starts, I have pink blood tinged mucus. This is like a warning sign to me. I don't count this as the first day of my period. My last cycle, I had the usual spotting. It was earlier than usual, though. The next day, it was in between spotting and a flow. I still didn't count this as the first day of my period. The third day I had a constant flow and counted this as the first day of my period. Should I include the spotting when calculating my cycles?

Re: When Does Period Start?

Your cycle is meant to start the first day of a real bleed, ie anything that you need to use a pad or tampon for, not spotting
