When does my period technically start?

I just poured my heart out to my doctor's answering service, oops...

I have the Paragard but because my periods are long and very heavy (and potentially causing other things to happen), I'm to start Yaz on the first day of my period (per dr). Problem is I don't know when it technically starts. I usually have brown discharge for up to a week and then I bleed very heavily for 4 or 5 days, followed by perhaps another week of the discharge.

Is this discharge "spotting"? Do I count the first day of this as my period, or when I start to bleed? Halp! The discharge just started today.

Thank you!

(sorry for the weird and random words, I had used the speech function on my phone to type this!)
