a couple weekends ago my gf and i were messing around and i had my pants off and i was sitting on top of her, she had her pants ON i know some pre ejaculate got on her stomach and some got on my hand. i put my pants back on and then gave her a back rub, then i fingered her. now a week later she is having dark brown blood/discharge. she said more comes out when she urinates. what does this mean? im pretty sure this is not a pregnancy risk but i hear their is always a chance. so what is this brown discharge?

Where is your girlfriend at in her menstrual cycle? Is she up to date with her reproductive health care?

So, this discharge is happening roughly three weeks after the end of her last period? Is she sure this isn't the start of a period?

And yes, by reproductive health care, I mean a gynecologist.

yes somewhere in that time range and she said it has never done this before and its like dark brown. and comes out a little at a time. and i dont think she has been the the gynecologist before. she is afraid she is pregnant and this is implantation bleeding but i dont think she could be pregnant we have never had direct genital to genital contact. this brown stuff has been coming out for 4 days but is small spurts

Well, there is no pregnancy risk from what you described. Why don't you and your partner take a look at this together: Pregnancy Scared?

Period blood doesn't always look the same. It's actually pretty normal for the blood to sometimes be darker, or more brown-ish in color. So, it sounds like this may just be an unusual-looking period.

Nevertheless, if your partner has never had any reproductive health care, now is an excellent time for her to get started.

Yep, some periods are lighter than others.

In general, with bleeding that comes around the time a period is due and lasts about as long as a period would, it's safe to assume that it is actually a period.

What might help your partner in the future is to start charting her periods, so she can get a better idea of when to expect them.

And, again: getting started with her gynecological care is a great idea.

With a week or more of unusual discharge, I'd suggest she see a sexual/reproductive healthcare provider. It sounds like she's overdue on starting that regular healthcare anyway (which she should have every year, and more often if anything like this comes up), so it seems to me now would be a very good time for her to get started with it.

Does she know where to go to find that care? If not, we'd be happy to help.

No, since the most typical first "symptom" of early pregnancy is the absence of blood or bleeding, not the other way round. What I'm personally concerned about with symptoms like this, especially from someone who has been involved in sexual activity but never had sexual healthcare, is a possible infection.

As Joey said above, there is no pregnancy risk from the sexual activity you described. However, we're not in the business of diagnosing pregnancy over the Internet; just not possible, even if we were doctors. [Smile]

At this point her best bet is to get to a doctor as soon as posssible and try not to worry too much about the possibilities.
