Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the question.

Yes the bleeding that you experienced for two days were your periods and should be counted as your fresh LMP.
The symptoms of bloating, constipation, tender breasts, and mild cramps indicate Premenstrual syndrome which may start 5 days prior to the onset of menses and usually subside with the end of menses.
So what you had was PMS.
I hope i have answered your query.
regards
