Irregular menstrual cycle. Had unprotected sex. Negative pregnancy test. Brown spotting after taking Clarithromycin. Normal?

I am really worried for I have been spotting since Oct.31, 2012. I am 20 years old who have irregular menstrual cycle. I had my last menstruation last Sept.10,2012. Had unprotected sex on Oct.12 but is sure that my boyfriend did not ejaculate inside me(But just to be sure, I had a pregnancy test last Nov.9 and it was negative). On Oct.21, I was prescribed to take Clarithromycin(an antibiotic) for 10 days due to a throat infection and on my last day of medication(Oct.31), I started having brown spotting. I do not know if the antibiotic caused this or what. It is exactly 16 days since I was spotting. I ve seen cervical mucus discharge twice, one is clear with few red in it (I think it is blood), the other is reddish. I am not experiencing any pain in my body. The spotting has no odor. I am not taking any birth control pills. These are all the info I can think of. Is my spotting normal? I am afraid I might have a disease or what. Please do reply.

hi
Let me answer your query.
Please do not panic.
You are not pregnant.
Spotting can be due to irregular hormone secretions or cervical erosion
You need to get USG done and a gynec check up with per speculum and per vaginal examination.

till then use TAb Pause 500 mg 3 times a day till spotting stops.
Use of Clingen vaginal tablets for a week will be of help.
You will be helped with Tab REGESTRONE 2 times a day for 10 days .

I hope this answer helps you.
Thanks
