First day of menstruation
What is considered the first day of menstruation?
I am trying to track my cycle by taking my BBT every morning.
On Sunday afternoon I noticed bleeding (not enough to fill a pad, but a significant amount), and on Monday the " full flow"  started.
Should I jot Sunday as the first day or Monday?
If temperatures make any difference, on Monday my BBT was 36.0 degrees and Tuesday (today) it dropped by 0.2 to 35.9 degrees.

Start on Monday.
