    I’ve always been told that CD1 is the first day of true AF bleeding. So I’d go with Monday – it wasn’t a full day, but it was teh first day that wasn’t just spotting. Ultimately, it won’t affect things that much if your cycle starts a day early or a day late, but if it were me, I’d pick Monday.

    sorry-I’m dumb. I lciked tuesday but meant Monday. It’s whenever you see RED BLOOD & “flow”. Not just specs or spots. You started CD1 at 9pm Monday. If ANYTHING it might be Tuesday but def not wednesday.

    I always go with the first day I have full blood – whether it’s morning or evening. I picked Monday! 🙂

    My doctor told me that you don’t count spotting as CD1 unless you spot for 3 or more days. Then you’d count the 4th day of spotting as CD1. In your case I’d say Monday!
