    Hello all, just a quick one.

    When does everyone count as the first day of AF?

    It's only because I am currently spotting prior to AF, so put in my app that yesterday was CD1. However, I think from looking online that I should be counting from first day of full flow, which technically I am still waiting for.

    It's amazing what difference it makes to your ovulation dates - potentially where I have been going wrong lol!

    Yeah I've heard it's first day of full flow


    and you are right it does make a massive difference to when you'd expect to ovulate

    Cool thanks - think I just get so impatient when I know AF is coming, that I try and start my new cycle as soon as possible!

    The first day I see bright red blood. I have light periods so it might mean when the bright red blood starts and might be regular spotting turning into full flow.

    Well, I have just had 2 days of very light, brown discharge (Tmi!), and no red blood yet, so I have no idea what's going on - obviously not on cd1....
