Day 1 of AF Question

Postby serenity6 » Wed Aug 16, 2017 10:41 am

What do you count as Day 1 of your AF? I tend to spot when using the bathroom, and a liner is usually sufficient for a day or 2 then i get AF full force on the 3rd day. I've been counting day 1 as the full force day. Is that wrong?

Hmm I don't really know the answer to that. My af usually starts full force but if I spotted for a day I wouldn't count that as day 1. I think it's suppose to be full flow.

Yes. If you use fertility friend (which I highly recommend!) and you enter spotting, it won't start a new cycle. When you enter light flow or higher, it starts cycle day 1.

Fertility friend is free and has a great charting course/videos you can go through that is super full of really good information!
