Question: I am taking Clomid to help me conceive, have just completed my first round. My period was due yesterday and instead of my usual red blood I had a brown discharge. Today it is turning more red. My query is shall I take yesterday as day 1 of my new cycle?

Brief Answer:
Yes you should take yesterday as day one.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

Yes you should take yesterday as day one.

It is not the color of the discharge but onset of bleeding (red or brown) that signifies first day of menses.

I was on clomid for two cycles and ovulated with good progesterone on day 21 but did not get pregnant. I took this month off to let my body rest because my periods are really light and only last 1 day and never have to wear more than a panty liner. I am 35 years old and have no children. My last period was on the 7th and I have very strong cramps and thought I was gushing blood but I only had half of the tampon was saturated. I have been cramping on and off since then and it has been 12 days. My nipples also have been having spasms occasionaly and blue veins are prominent more than usual. I feel light headed at times and sometime nauseated or emotional but not very often. I took a pregnancy test a couple days after my period and it was negative. Do I have a cyst? Why have I been cramping and I never have sore breast mid month only sore nipples a few days before my periods. Please help.
