Me and my girlfriend had sex about 5 times(with both condom and withdraw at the same time) after her last period. Last week friday i fingered her quite aggresively and we she noticed brownish/pink blood afterwards for about a day. Could it have been due to aggressiveness? I might add this was a week before her due period. I'm concerned what this blood could have been.

That is most likely what it was.

Genital tissue is really delicate and pretty easy to cut, scratch or rub raw, especially if we are being aggressive, and/or the person with said genitals isn't very aroused and very lubricated.

You always want to figure that a good general guideline is that anything you think would be too rough with the same part of your body or a comparable part (for instance, you may not have a vagina, but you have an anus, and that's a decent comparison) is probably too rough to do to someone else's body. Given, we're not all the same with our pain and pleasure thresholds, but there's no harm in erring on the side of being gentle: people can always ask us to be more intense.

As well, if you were doing that without latex gloves and lubricant, abrasions are also easy to come by. Even little callouses can cause that, so with deep manual sex like you're describing, lube at a minimum, but ideally gloves, are the best way to go to avoid injury and have things feel the best they can.

Thank you for the quick response! This forum is truly amazing. She's late on her period which was supposed to occur today. Implantation bleeding crossed my mind and I'm having a freakout like most people who post. She has been extremely fatigued more than usual lately. Any reassurance or suggestions?

If you two have been using condoms properly, which includes for ALL genital contact, and adding withdrawal, pregnancy is not at all likely an issue here unless you know there has recently been a time when the condom wasn't worn for all contact, slipped off or broke.

If she's really tried lately and late on a period, that could be about stress or illness, both of which are way more likely to be the culprits here than a pregnancy.
