Sorry if this is , but how much flow do you need to have in order to count it as CD 1? I have enough to wear a light tampon today, but it's been in for 3 hours and there were a little bit there, but not nearly full. Does that count as CD 1? I always thought that was right, but I just called my dr's office and the receptionist told me that day 1 should be the first day of heavy flow. I'm confused now!
I've wondered this as well. Since I've been taking Clomid, the first day is usually not red (actually it's a dark brown, which always worries me), but it's still enough to need a pad or tampon. I don't typically count it as day 1, though, because it's not red. I think that's the rule that I have heard most frequently in deciding when you've actually starting AF. HTH...
Born 12/30/11 and absolutely perfect!
For me its always different. I could have brown spotting on day 1 but I need a pad so I count it as day 1 even though I don't get a full red bleed till day 2...
or I could start off with a full heavy red flow.
Everyone is different honey and also every cycle is different. Oh and don't worry nothing here is
