Brown spotting with clots for 2 days while breast feeding

I have been breastfeeding for 6 months now, almost 7 and three days ago I started having mild cramps and brown clotty discharge. I am not on an BC and AF hasn t returned yet. The discharge only lasted 2 days and a pregnancy test was negative. Now there is no discharge but still mild cramping. Is this my body preparing for my period to return or could it be implantation bleeding? Should I take another test? I believe that I ovulated a few weeks ago for the first time since I had the stringy discharge for a few days, but am not 100% positive since I am not sure of my cycle just yet. This is my second child and I didn t have this issue before with my first. I am 25, healthy, and my son is exclusively breastfed other than 2 tablespoons a day of fruit or cereal.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
YES you have rightly pointed out that your body is preparing to start a normal menstrual cycle after a gap of 6-7 months.The 6-7 months period passed without menses and the condition is called Lactational Amenorrhoea.Now i guess the hormones are starting to work up and start regular periods.The brown clotting and cramping was probably your first period since delivery.Please consult your Gynaec and discuss the issue do not worry.
