Um, OK, I think I understand what you are asking and this is the only way I can explain it....I print out an ovulation calendar every month through WebMD and I give them a 28 day cycle to go by. When I look at the calendar CD28 will be on April 14th and my expected AF will be on the 15th which will be CD1....does that help?
You are right. It is confusing though. If AF arrives on CD 28, then CD 28 now becomes CD1. Do you usually count CD 1 when you start spotting, or do you wait till the next day when AF comes on full force?
I always count CD1 from the day I start getting any blood.
Now I know why this site is for women.... if DH were to look at what I just wrote he would probably faint. Honestly, I don't know why men are so squeemish about a woman's period. (Though I have to admit that I have used that fact for some very funny encounters - you just have to tease them about it sometimes!)
