Megmarie- I have this issue too. I spot every month for a couple days so I asked my doctor the same question. She said to start your first day as the day you get red heavy flow. It's so confusing though isn't it? I am actually in a similar situation atm. I am on calendar day 35 and I am still spotting but no "real" AF. My period last month started on the 13th and now here it is the 20th and no real period. Soo frustrating!
****I just saw velvet crushes answer. Lol. Now I am really confused. I have been calculating my first day from when I get red blood. Hmm now I am worried I have been doing it wrong, but I know that's what my doctor said. Does anyone else have any input on this? Any extra opinions would be great because I would like to know now as well.
Congratulations skarbasoona! Wonderful news! Hope you have a fabulous pregnancy!
Velvetcrush- WOW! It sounds like you have been through A LOT! I am so happy you got a bfp after all of your struggles. Good luck and keep us posted!

@megmarie your physician should be timing the clomid with your menstrual cycle (typically it is given from Day 5- Day 10). Which day is s/he using to calculate?
Also a very well-known, physiologic side effect of Clomid is abnormal uterine bleeding. It results in a lot of unopposed estrogen which will increase your endometrial growth and subsequent shedding (i.e. your period).Blade, MD

@blade, my doctor wants me to take Clomid on days 3-7. She says that she has seen good results for these days, as well as days 5-9. I just don't know what day will be day three? Do I start counting on the first day of spotting, the day that I spotted and started the real period right before bed, or the first full blown day?
Thanks"Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible."

I have calcualted my ovulation by starting with the first day of heavy flow.I spotted for 3 days as well this month! So I wasn't.sure when to start my cycle day either. But I generally ovulate day 16 and starting from the day I had the heavy flow I'm right on track. So I'm assuming its the day you start needing a tampon if you get my drift! lol. But I would love a more accurate answer then my guesses! Thanks for asking the question!TTC a lil bundle of joy since March 2012. Nothing yet, but praying.
