You might have heard that from someone else. The red blood = period thing is one of those myths that keeps circulating. The color of the bleeding doesn't tell you what kind of bleeding it is - ovulation, withdrawal, and implantation bleeding can all be red too. They can also be heavy for some women. The timing of the bleeding with reference to the CM pattern is one of the ways to figure out what kind of bleeding it is.

The only time to consider bleeding a "true" period is if it was preceded by ovulation. Many PP women get some withdrawal or breakthrough bleed before their first ovulation and first real period.
