No, spotting and breakthrough bleeding does not count as the first day of your period. Spotting and breakthrough bleeding is an annoyance that occurs as an unwanted side effect of Birth Control. However, frequent spotting or breakthrough bleeding can also be a sign that you need a higher dosage of birth control.

Light spotting before period?

It's relatively common. It's a form of pms.... if you're tracking your cycle, the day your period starts is the first day of FLOW. A few days of spotting before your period really starts does not count as part of your "proper" period. It's one of the top mistakes women make when they're tracking their period.
