Charting question: spotting vs light flow

Okay, I feel like I am 11 and trying to figure out my 1st period all over again! It's my first cycle off the ring. I have been having spotting since 3 days past ovulation.

When it is considered a light AF flow vs just heavy spotting? I am having a hard time deciding if this is just the lightest period I have ever had in my life or if this is just continued spotting. Trying to figure out if I should make today CD1 in my next cycle or continue on with this one. My temps are still up. I figure if they plummet I will know it is AF happening now.

How do you distinguish between the two or should I just wait it out and see if my temps drop?

    • flow: red

  • I agree with the previous 3 posts (haha), spotting is usually darker than af. And, wait it out and see if your temps drop.
  • I think I might just be having a REALLY light period, but I am definitely going to watch to see if my temps drop. They haven't so far.
