My GF starting getting this dark brown discharge one week before her period was due. This Discharge lasted for two weeks. she said she only really noticed it when she wiped after peeing and she never got her period, just the same brown discharge. I have fingered her in the past and ejaculated onto her stomach but i have never ejaculated onto her vulva or touched her vagina with my penis... what is going on? thanks!

So, she had spotting that started a week before her period was due, but the spotting never turned into a full, regular flow?

That sounds like she just had a wonky cycle this time around. It happens from time to time. If she's concerned, she can take a pregnancy test to confirm, but I'd not worry about this too much.

If her period is irregular next month, too, it would be a good idea to give her gynecologist a call.

Yea it started a week before her period was due and then lasted two weeks without her period ever starting. the only sexual contact we had was me with no pants on on top of her with her underwear and pajamas on and i ejaculated on her stomach then she rolled over onto her stomach and i gave her a back rub and then i pulled her pants down and fingered her.

That's most likely it, yep. It can happen sometimes, and it doesn't sound like there's been a pregnancy risk (although as Joey said, if she wants she can take a pregnancy test).

Yes, it could well have been. As Joey said, sometimes the menstrual cycle gets thrown off.

If it happens again and she's concerned she can talk to her doctor.

There's no telling why it did. But since she was spotting lightly and the uterus will keep shedding until the lining is gone, that's just how long it took that particular time.

the uterine lining includes old blood, which looks dark, and other tissue. Not uncommon for it to be a brown colour.
