Hi jasi4lyfe,

The brown mucus discharge and traces of blood are due to the intercouse. It isn't abnormal to spot after having intercourse, that is due to the intensity of the sexual act itself. Although, he pulled out of you this time, it is a very poor form of birth control and is subject to fail. Please remember those who use the "Pull and Pray method of birth control usually end up being Parents. To avoid this, please refrain from having sex, if you chose to contine to do so, please do so responsibilelly. Please overcome the secrectcy and shame and see a health care provider for a reliable form of birth control. It is less embarrassing for your mother to know you are on birth control as opposed to being pregnant.

Good Luck,

Faded Rose
