Ok I know that a cycle is usually from the first day of AF until the next one...BUT when do you start counting after a m/c or D&C? Am I on cycle one now or does cycle one start with my first AF??? Will I ovulate before I get my first AF?? I am supposed to wait to TTC again until after 2 cycles so I am confused on whether or not to count right now until AF as a cycle.

This does count as a cycle, however, you never know how long it will be or if you will ovulate. I believe I have read that you need to have a full 20 days with no bleeding in order to consider it a normal period. Once that arrives, you have had your first cycle. Hope that helps.

Thank you RaspberryBeret for my gorgeous siggy!

Actually, you do O before AF. That is what brings her on. I Oed exactly 14 days after I stopped spotting. I would recommend temping this cycle to verify that you Oed & then start counting down after that to your 1st AF.
