@MissLunchbox:  I thought most charts were based on the first day of your period, not the last, as that is what your doctor willl use to predict your baby’s due date? I used the Pink Pad app, if that helps.

Yeah, the last day of your period really isn’t all that important. Most everything that I’ve learned goes off of your first day. But to answer your question, I would say yesterday would have been your last day.

@MissLunchbox:  I mark steady brown flow as menses anyways. I only mark anything that is too light to require a pad or tampon as spotting. Hope that helps!

ETA: I also don’t mark anything for CM if there’s spotting unless the CM is really obvious or it’s mid-cycle spotting.

@ScottishMrs:  +1.

 I’d just mark as spotting instead of actual CM. Usually the chart will show a * for spotting instead of heavy/med/light flow.

Hope this helps!

When I was charting, I considered anything not bright red flow to be spotting. So any pink or brown discharge went into my app as spotting. Don’t stress it too much – like some of the others said, the last day of your period isn’t that important for charting purposes.

If I bleed enough to have to change a panty liner, then I consider it still part of my period. I usually spot several days before and after my period, but I rarely need a panty liner for those days, and if I do, I could conceivably use one without changing it (except that would be gross). I think technically, it’s more about the amount of blood than the color. The moderators on TCOYF’s forums have a handy chart they post explaining how to designate spotting, very light, light, medium, heavy, etc.
