Brown discharge after having rough sex

Hi! I seriously need your help. They day before, I had rough sex (meaning super dry) sex with boyfriend. That was the 26th day of my cycle. The next day, I noticed a dark brown discharge on my panty. It only happened that night. The ff days, I only noticed a super light brown-white mucus discharge. My cycle usually lasts from 34-44 days. I am worried if I may be pregnant and what happened to me is implantation bleeding. My bf and I only used a condom as our protection. My breasts are kinda sore but maybe its because my period is due next week. What do you guys think? I hope someone answers my question.

In my experience, sex has been known to jump-start my period, and the first signs for me are huge/sore breasts and brown discharge, (which is old blood, I believe) and this all happens approximately a week before my period starts, so maybe your body is acting the same way.

Condoms are usually a very effective form of birth control when they're used properly. :) It sounds to me like some early PMS, but that's just based on my own experience.

If you're worried and would like to take a pregnancy test, I'm sure someone else could tell you when you could get an accurate result. (I'm too fuzzy on that to give you accurate info.)

Thank you for your response. :) This is the first time I experienced this. Was your discharge light brown or dark brown? Mine was more on the dark side so I am worried because that only happens to me right around my period. And my period is only due next week. :s

My pleasure. :) It's usually a darker brown for me.

Thanks! That super helps. I guess this is just PMS. :)

If you used a condom and it didn't break, my guess is that the brown discharge is actually a little bit of blood from a mild scrape inside your vagina. It's unlikely that you'd be experiencing pregnancy symptoms if your period isn't even due yet.

Yup, our condom didnt break during or after the deed. I also thought that it might be from scraping inside my vagina. But wouldnt I have a red rather than a brown discharge? Super thanks for your help!
nickelshoe Re: Thanks!8th-Dec-2010 07:21 am (UTC)
If you were bleeding around the entrance, I'd expect red blood. But if the scrape was higher up, and especially since it took awhile to come out, I'm not surprised it was brown.
diva_44 Re: Thanks!8th-Dec-2010 07:26 am (UTC)
Yey! Thanks for your reply. Kinda feel relieved now. Im planning to take a HPT tom. Is that too early to do?
diva_44 Additional Question8th-Dec-2010 07:18 am (UTC)
Would it be okay if I test for pregnancy by tom given that its only my 28th day and I wont be due till the 34th-44th day?
nickelshoe Re: Additional Question8th-Dec-2010 07:27 am (UTC)
You can't really trust a negative result until about 14 days after ovulation (around the time your period is due) or 19 days after sex. A positive is almost always a positive, but a negative can just mean you haven't had time to build up enough hormones.

You just had sex two days ago? There's no way you'd be feeling pregnancy symptoms. It takes a few days just for the egg to implant, let alone for hormones to be produced in quantities that would give you symptoms. There's no reason at all to suspect you are pregnant based on the bleeding or breast soreness.

We also had sex on my 19th and 20th day but on both times we used a condom and he withdrew long before he was going to come. That's why Im kinda worried about this brown discharge. :s

Implantation rarely occurs the day after, generally 3-7days after sex.

Its likely just a bit of blood from the rough sex :)
diva_44 Thanks for the reply! :)8th-Dec-2010 07:48 am (UTC)
The problem is, we also had sex on the 19th and 20th day. So I dont know if the bleeding is implantation bleeding coz it happened 6-7days after we had sex or if it was blood after the rough sex the other day. :s
mistymoose Re: Thanks for the reply! :)8th-Dec-2010 08:20 am (UTC)
If you were wearing a condom and he withdrew its very unlikely. What day of your cycle are you on now? You can usually rely on the result from a HPT 19 days after the sex.

I wouldn't worry too much hun, getting pregnant is surprisingly difficult even when trying! If the condom didn't break you're quite safe.
diva_44 Re: Thanks for the reply! :)8th-Dec-2010 02:49 pm (UTC)
Hey! :) Thank you for your reassuring message. It really helps me to calm down a bit while reading your message. :) Im on my 27th day. And today, there was some red discharge but not a lot. Kinda fills up the middle of a panty liner but not too much. I dont know if thats my period or not. Its weird coz I usually have it around the 34th day. :s
mistymoose Re: Thanks for the reply! :)9th-Dec-2010 02:00 am (UTC)
Its still possible its just from the rough sex :) You're a bit too early in your cycle for a pregnancy test just yet- if you are worried then you'll be able to take one when your period is due and take the result pretty conclusively :)

Super dry rough sex sometimes makes me bruise inside and I get a little brown discharge - the cervix is very vascular, after all. Sometimes if I'm within 3-5 days of my period multiple orgasms can, well, seem to either jump start a light trickle of my period or make a little squeeze of blood come out a bit before its time.
diva_44 Thanks for the reply! :)8th-Dec-2010 02:50 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I hope its really what u said. Im having red discharges that turns brown but not a lot. I hope its my period and not just some implantation bleeding. :s

If your cervix gets jostled, it might bleed. As darkenedminds put it, the cervix is very vascular--there are lots of blood vessels there for the breaking!

Also, I occasionally will bleed if I have a sufficiently strong orgasm. This might be from the cervical bumping, or it might be something else. Sometimes, bleeding during sex is a symptom of an STI, but I've been checked for most and am clear. (Not Hep B, but I'm vaccinated.)

In short, the bleeding's probably from the rough sex.
