Spotting after 7 months w/o period

Hi. Last period was April (7 months ago), and I'm on HRT. I guess I just assumed this was "it". But tonight got a tiny bit of spotting. Does this count as "still having periods" or just nothing?

To be clear, I'm not hoping for periods, I'm just clueless with this all. I'll see how next couple of days go, but funnily, was having cramping & sore breasts.

Anyone had similar?

Thank you!

It's a period.

Usually hrt 'resets' them but some women bleed ( period) outside the hrt cycle (assume you are using sequi , which gives a withdrawal bleed,and not a combined continuous one which is only for women who have not had a period for 12 months or more.)

Thank you @JinglingHellsBells

I'm on Sequi patches, so yes - oestrogen first 2 weeks, then combined.

I was just assuming I'd get to April with nothing & that would be it.

Post meno is 12 months with no period. It's really common to go right up to 11 months then have one or a few more.

@JinglingHellsBells yeah, that's why I was asking. I had just assumed after 7 months, this would be it by April.
