Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. You have had sexual intercourse during your fertile days (days of ovulation). Hence, there’s a possibility and the brown discharge which you have mentioned could be due to implantation bleeding which happens due to the implantation of the zygote into the inner lining of the uterus. I’ll suggest waiting for your periods and in case you don’t get them, doing urine for pregnancy test. If you can’t wait that long, then a serum beta HCG level assessment can be done around 10 days after the sexual intercourse. This is a hormone which is raised in pregnancy and help in confirming the same.

I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
