    Default Dumb question about CD1

    My AF has kind of changed in recent months and I'm now confused about what I should consider as day 1.

    It now starts off being quite light (but a little more than I'd consider spotting) with a few slight twinges for about a day or so then it starts properly on the second day with cramps and everything.

    So is the lighter day CD1 or would you count it from the second day when it's really kicking in?

    We'll be starting IVF next cycle and I want to make sure I get my days right!

    I've always gone by the actual flow starting as CD1

    Ivf clinics say day 1 is the first day of proper flow, not just spotting. Doing ivf, day 1 is flow starting before 6pm. If it starts after 6 they say the next day is day 1 (that was genea clinic)

    Oh ok, that makes sense.

    Mine (QFG) counted it as first day of proper flow (not just spotting/ when you wipe). And anything after 2pm counted as the next day.
