Dear Megan

Sorry for the late reply but it may be helpful to answer this for any future treatment that you may be undertaking. If one is only spotting then you should not regard that as your first day of your period and only when there is a start of a reasonable flow then that is normally considered the first day of the cycle. To try and avoid spotting pre-menstrually it would be advisable to be on an oral contraceptive pill before the commencement of an IVF cycle.
