When does your period proper start? 

spotting doesn’t count as the end of your luteral phase and 10 days is considered the lower point of normal. I always spot before my period (while not TTC I like it as it’s a warning to get ready) I had trouble getting pregnant with my first but in every test I had, and every doctor we saw stated that my spotting had nothing to do with me not getting pregnant. As it was I spotted even on the cycles where I was pregnant. 

I read up loads about spotting as well and a good book to look at is called the period repair manual. Some great advice in there.

I had a short luteal phase coming off BC in January and this is the first month I’ve O’d before cycle day 20. I started seed cycling with flax/pumpkin + sesame/sunflower (Look it up for specifics) and taking vitamin C. I O’d on CD 16 and currently 7 dpo, so we’ll see if I make it past 10dpo this month! FX!

A year after coming off the pill my cycles were still long (32-38 days) and my LP was short… spotting at day 6/7 and a typically 8 day LP. I took B6 to lengthen my LP and got pregnant my second cycle taking it. It moved my ovulation up a few days and lengthened my LP to 10+days.
