Light cramping in lower abdomen, light discharge. Have implanon. Is this a symptom?

Hey, tonight as I was preparing dinner, I had light cramping in my lower adomen. When I sat on the toilet, my undies seemed to have period blood on them (my undies were black, so I didn t know the colour) and when I wiped, I noticed the discharge was dark brown and lumpy. It had no strong smell that I could notice and I have been eating healthily. I do have the implanon - and I haven t seen a period for 5 months now, which is considered normal. But I only went to the bathroom 1 hour before this happened, so it wasn t a period that had been sitting there a while. In that hour, I was walking around cleaning the house and cooking dinner, of which I had cramps throughout. Is this a symptom? If not, what is it?

Thanks for the query.
Implanon can cause abdominal cramps, brown spotting etc. as side effects.
So possibly these symptoms can be because of that.
Usually these symptoms will subside soon and no need to worry.
If the symptoms continue or reappear better to consult doctor once.
Take care.
