No need now: This spotting might be ovulation (so these days may be your fertile time. Only if your next period does not arrive do you need to test. If this really worries you, do use extra protection during your most fertile times. I hope your infection is resolved. Antibiotics can throw your body off for a bit. Don't worry.
