I’m trying to remember what I did when I was on Provera and had this same thing happen this summer. My spotting started later in the evening so I counted CD1 as the first morning/first FULL day of “flow.” That said, my flow was really never more than spotting so . . . my situation was a little different. I was also on Clomid and I know that you can take it CD3-7 or CD5-9 (I did 5-9 and didn’t O until CD22) so I’d guess that there’s no harm in counting the first day of spotting as CD1 because even if CD2 is REALLY CD1, you’re only taking the Clomid ONE day earlier. Does that make sense?

I would call your RE’s office and ask them. To me yesteray would be CD 1… but it’s better to get a professional opinion ๐Ÿ™‚ GOOD LUCK LADY!!!

I would count yesterday as CD1. It’s really not going to make much of a difference either way. Good luck hon!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I never had that problem on Provera so I would just call your RE and see what they say. GL and FX for you.

I would count yesterday if the blood was red and not a brownish color (old blood)…Good Luck.  I didn’t succeed with clomid or femera.

@StaceyA:  As long as you ALWAYS count the first day of red spotting as CD1 (keep it consistent) then you are safe usually, but I always count the first day of red flow as CD1 which would be today. Ask your RE to be 100% sure. 
As you know though, I had that weird stopping and starting my period thing……where it would bleed, be bright red, black, stop, bright red, black, nothing, etc for like five days. So I HAD to pick the full day of red flow as CD1. It also made the most sense with my temps.
