I'm really confused here! The first day of LMP was Oct. 10, my cycles are usually 28 days. On Wednesday (CD38), I had some brown discharge. So, yesterday I figured AF was here. I had some red blood (sorry!) but it was mostly brown and it was very light, not like my usual period. Today when I went to the bathroom there was a big clot in the toilet (sorry again I don't mean to be graphic, but I don't know how else to explain) - it was a dark brown. I still have some brown discharge. I'm not sure if AF started yesterday because of the blood. Can anyone help? I also started a chart on FF and marked yesterday as Day 1.
It is confusing at first - once I figured it out I realized I had my counts all off. If the flow was enough that you had to have a pad or tampon, then you count that as CD 1, if not, then it is considered spotting.
