Customer Question

Does my period start the day I started to spot or actually bleed. I started to spot on Monday but it stopped overnight, picked back up again on Tuesday and stopped for a brief time. I then started to actually bleed on early Wednesday morning.
So what day did my cycle actually start? Please advise.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Your period is considered started on Monday --may start light and then can get heavy lasting 3 to 5 days.

However, in case of irregular period, it will be hard to track ovulation 9 only works with regular period well).
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
