You should count the first day of red flow as CD1.

First day is full on period, spotting doesn’t count. Not a dumb question 🙂

sara_tiara:  I’ve had this as well.  My rule (in addition to the “red flow” rule, because that was still kind of confusing to me) was that the first day I needed to use protection (pad, tampon, menstrual cup) was CD1.  If the spotting was just when I wiped, I just counted it as spotting.
