Does this count as AF??

IUD came out on Wed. I read that I would have a withdrawal bleed and that counts as AF for cycle tracking. Well Friday night DH and I DTD. Sat I had spotting that seemed to taper off, so I thought maybe we were just too rough. By late Sat night though it was heavy enough to need a pad. Then by Sunday afternoon it was nothing more than spotting, and today there is nothing. I'm really confused because that seems like way too much bleeding for sex, but not nearly enough for what is supposed to be like AF. Heck, after GETTING the IUD I bled for 2 months straight, so barely a full day seems pretty dang short.

Any thoughts??

I could count that as a period.
I have VERY wonky cycles, and a few years ago, I had 3 days of crazy light spotting. It had been over 1 month of being "late" but I wasn't pregnant. I was on the way to getting meds to make AF show up. Then, while at Disneyland (go figure) I had 3 days of spotting. I emailed my OB and asked if that should be counted as a period or to go ahead and take the provera?
He said that anything that is since it was consistent, then I should call it AF. Well, one month later I found out I was pregnant. The days were right on as if those spotting days were AF!
I'd say count it as AF, and just keep watching for fertility signs to see if your O'ing, or you might have an annovulatory cycle and just get a more normal AF!

I was advised to chart the removal bleeding as spotting (even the heavier flow) and then wait for my actual period to start. If I was able to distinguish between my actual period and the removal bleeding, then chart the removal as spotting only and the period as period. If I was unable to distinguish between my actual period and the removal bleeding, then chart the removal bleeding as the start of my period.
