So i feel like an idiot for asking... but when do you consider the first day of your cycle? When there is red? I have been having brown spotting, and today there was a good amount on the tampon. Do i consider today the first day? I have had something similar like this before and my period didnt start for another week or so....what do you all think?

Your first say of actual red flow is considered the start of your period. If you have a couple days of brown blood or a couple days of spotting pink and only when you wipe, don't count those days. When you actually wear a pad or tampon and see red blood you have started. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have the same problem. I spot for a a good four/five days before my period starts. if it's brown, it's not period yet, when it starts flowing red then it's period, and that would be your first day. even if it's all red but it's not "flowing" out then it's still spotting. I count the first day as the day when it really starts flowing. when you start keeping track of your cycles it starts to make sense and you'll notice how it coincides with when you ovulate....
