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.
