I posted this under the TTC board, so sorry if this is a repeat for some of you ladies! I just wanted to get a few more opinions from you ladies here!


I am suppose to take clomid days 3-7 this cycle. I know this is crazy but I can't decide if today is CD3 or not. For the last two days I've had to wear pads (TMI warning) and I've had a moderate amount of brown bleeding. It's more than "spots" and definitely required more than a liner, but the blood wasn't red. Today, the blood is red. Should I count the two days of brown as CD1&2 since it was heavier than "spotting"?? Or do I count the first day of red bleeding as CD1?


As always, THaNK YoU!!

I'd call your doc to double check, but I was always told first day of full flow is CD1, or the next day if full flow started after 5 pm.

I think waiting to start tomorrow is a safe bet. Are you going to take it at morning or at night?

It's also better to take it a day late then a day early because some RE's rx it CD5 instead of CD3. From my experience - either day didn't make to much of a difference. Good Luck!
