Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The irregular spotting you are having might be because of slight hormonal disturbance or due to the anxiety and stress you are going through. As your pregnancy test is negative. You need not worry anymore. Just wait for your normal regular period to start without any medicines.
