I could really separate the two issues so am combining into one topic. Basicially, when do you count as the first day of your period? I have brown discharge for about a day before proper red blood, so I don't know whether to count this or not.
I have just come off the pill for the first time in 16 years (went on it at 16) and all through then I had brown discharge for about a day first. I would class this as the start of my period and use a tampon, red blood appearing about a day later.
Now I've come off the pill, had the withdrawal bleed and started TTC this month. So I want to know when to start counting from. The brown arrived today, so I assume AF is here properly tomorrow?
