So here is the deal. I was on the pill for 9 years. I just got married and my husband and I are trying for a baby. I have been off the pill now for 5 months and my period seems to start at a more regular time but I am unsure of a few things when tracking. First of all when I start to bleed, or spotting I think it is brown for a good 5 days then I finally get a real red period. When do I actually start tracking my period as the official day? When I see any sign of blood, the brown, or when I actually see red. I want to accurately mark this so I know my ovulation days. I have a period tracker app for this but I need to know how I record my results for it to give me good results. HELP

In my opinion, i would say spotting is spotting. I would count your period start date from when you see red. I also spot brown for a few days prior to O, its almost like my CM goes from white and creamy to brown and creamy (sorry tmi) but i just consider it to be CM and not AF.
