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

I am currently being tested for some type of hormone imbalance. I have always suffered with period related problems such as constant thrush with any change in my cycle and bleeding for to long. The blood test so far have confirmed I have a border line under active thyroid and elevated liver enzymes. I seem to be lossing a lot of my hair as well & I have gained a stone in 5 months. here are a few other things I m not sure if there are linked - night sweats / itchy-tingly nipple/ very weak and tired / mood swings / painful intercourse / vaginal dryness/breasts have grown/feeling sick/headaches. i also had a swab a few days ago as I was bleeding (and shouldn t be as the doctor has stopped my periods for 6 months) and the nurse said my cervix was bleeding and looked aggravated she seemed to think i may have a low grade infection.that might explain the low backache and period type pains I m having.I have had a laporoscopy to look for endometriosis but all was clear I was sent away and was told it would get better after a baby this was 3 years ago and since then I have had a baby and it s made everything worse. Please help

Ultra sound scan said ovaries ok.arto uterus empty and intact.no significant fluid in sac.cervix enlarged (41*35).The conclusion of the ultrasound scan is that heterogenous cervical mass and pap smear is advised.
