When you start your period do you count those days as your 28 days if you have brown old blood first or when it is red?

Start when you first see blood of any color. But not all women are on a 28 day cycle.

AnswerI would have to disagree from my own personal experience...when I get my fertile mucus, it's usually 14-16 days counting from my heavy bleed not my spotting.

It depends, it is usually 28 days but of course everyone is different, you should get it every month and then mark it on a calendar to see a pattern, which will help you know when you have regular periods.

When you start your period if you have brown, old blood first you count those days as the first day of your 28 day menstrual cycle. You do not have to start counting day one when the blood is red.

yes u do count the the first blood as the start of a period it usually last up to 7 days

User Avatar

No, when counting your menstrual cycle day one is the first day of true bleeding. Brown discharge is spotting, small amouts of blood mixing with discharge as you start to bleed, but you don't count this as day one.

Totally normal. If you notice when you first start your period it is bright red, and then towards the end of your period, it's brown. Brown blood=old blood, it just means its older! you will be alright!

In the first few days of your period it's the old blood coming out and that is always brownish. It gets lighter after that.

User Avatar

yes and no. its when lots of blood comes out of your area....>.<

The first day of your period is the first day of 'true bleeding' which would be the first day you see red blood. You can see spotting like brown or pink discharge for a lot of reasons so you don't want to count that as your period if it turns out not to be. Although it doesn't matter that much anyway as it really doesn't have to be exact, just keep track of when you start roughly and you'll be fine.

Day #1 is the last day of your period, then count to the first day of your next period. No, Day #1 is the FIRST day of your period, then count the days to the first day of your next period.

painful pains at the bottom of your stomach, heavy discharge. your period blood when you first start will be a reddish brown colour!

User Avatar

The first day of your period is the first day of bleeding - actual blood, not spotting (pink or brown discharge) - this is also the first day of your menstrual cycle.

User Avatar

My first period was the same as the rest of them. It should be kinda red-brown.

It isn't uncommon for the blood to be brown when you first start your period, especially if you are five days late. If there is a chance that you may be pregnant, a home pregnancy test can be taken.

The first day of your period is the first day of bleeding - you don't count days when you are spotting (brown or pink discharge).

User Avatar

No, you do not. However, it will be like brown mucus coming out of your vagina the first time you get your period, then eventually the uterine lining will become normal and turn to blood.

User Avatar

That the blood was supposed to come out some time ago, but that's completely normal.

User Avatar

Depending on your cycles... I personally count the last day of my period...

User Avatar

Yes, your first period starts with dark-looking blood.

User Avatar

It is just "old blood" from the last period. Very common. Or if you haven't started yet, it's probably your first period :)

User Avatar

Actually you want to count your first day of full "flow" as your first day. Your actual shedding of the lining, that causes your cycle bleeding, is what counts as the first day If you have to use little to no protection, then its not your first day yet

User Avatar

I think it's blood that already hit the air , so it turns brown usually indicating that your period was late

User Avatar

Take a test if you think you are pregnant. It is common to have brownish blood at the beginning of your period, especially the first signs of blood. If there is any doubt TAKE A TEST!!
