D&C and your first period after

Laurie • Mama to daughter E (3) and son J (newborn).

Hi all,

I had a D&C; 11/16.

No sign of a period since until I spotted once on 12/22 and nothing again until 12/25. That’s when I got a full blown, heavy period.

Should I mark that my period started at the time of spotting, or when it really made an appearance?

I normally use digital OPK tests anyway, so tracking is relatively a no brainer, but I’m curious when y’all would mark the beginning of a new cycle and when my fertile window should start.
