CD1 AF question(TMI)
hipnautica posted:
Hi ladies it has been a very long time since I have been on here. I was on back in March getting my IVF done. Anyway long story short, just wanted to ask when should I count CD1. I have been TTC forever and you would think I would remember this stuff but I forget sometimes. Sat. night I wore a pad just in case but AF wasnt due until today, so when I got home I had about a dime size amout of blood on my pad and when I went to the bathroom it was a good bit but was bright red it was dark red and this was around 11pm. Yesterday was my normal flow, and im wondering even though it was bright red blood and as late as it was should I count CD1 when i saw the dark red blood or when I had my normal flow. Tried looking it up and everyone says different things. Some say normal flow while others say any sign of blood other than brown you count as CD1. Remember gyno nurse saying CD1 is counted when you see red blood. Anyway please let me know which day to count. Thanks.

Hello again Hipnautica!

My doctor told me the same thing your gyno nurse did--CD 1 is the first day of red bleeding (not spotting). Hopefully some of the members will jump in and share their opinions, too.

Best wishes,
