I think if you see RED, it’s considered AF.  Brown would be spotting.  Ladies?

@Wispy:  if it were me, i’d be calling it spotting – but then you say you have a light period, so I don’t know, i’m sorry!! I tend to get what you are describing a day or two before full flow starts, and I mark it as spotting.

I don’t think I’m helping at all!!

If it’s lighter than usual, I say spotting.

I was so confused about this too! I have just been counting the first day of bright red as CD1, based on what the nurse at my RE’s office advised. If it’s significantly lighter than normal though, I’d probably call and ask your doctor.
