    I posted this in LTTC but I thought I'd ask here as well :)

    I need a blood test on CD2 and am having trouble working this out.

    I was very lightly spotting yesterday evening, nothing on underwear (barely noticable) and the same again today....

    Now the leaflet says (and I quote) "The first full days bleeding is classed as cycle day one"

    So - I am not actually bleeding properly yet. Would you agree that CD1 will be tomorrow?

    Sorry to be so thick!

    hi nat,

    to me my cd 1 is the first day of full flow of bleeding. I often get a brownish colour spotting i dont count this as its not noticeable until i wipe TMI sorry! lol

    My cd1 is when i have red blood flow and need to use a pad/tampon.

    Can i just say i wear a pad as soon as i think im due on, the first bit of this answer makes it sound like i leave it to chance! lol

    Thanks Emma - I don't want to ring the RMC to ask them this LOL! They'll think I am an idiot.

    I think full day of proper bleeding will make CD1 tomorrow for me, I just wanted to double check.

    I have a little brownish stuff going on but nothing noticeable yet

    xxxxxxxxxx

    That's what I think too but now I have started to doubt myself.

    Think I'll call my GP and ask the receptionist?

    One of the downsides of my lovely big practice is it takes about an hour for anyone to answer the phone LOL!

    Will try again later - feel 99% cool with tomorrow being CD1 though!
