Q&A Index > Spotting or Light Flow
What is the difference between spotting and light flow? Which should I record?
If you need a pad or tampon and the flow is bright red, record “light flow” even if it is just a small amount. A new cycle will automatically be started for you if this is the first day of your period. If you do not require a pad or tampon and there is just a spot of dark red or brown when you wipe or on your underwear, record this as spotting.
