umm... brown is usually a sign for "old blood", so it's probably nothing to worry about....

Hello, Baby Girl.
I'd say call your doctor and have a long talk with him or her about everything that is going on for you. You are very young and really need lots of guidance with this as your bleeding, etc... sounds much more unhealthy than normal. You'll want your doc to keep an eye on you. Till then, I'd say no more sex.
Good Luck.

Brown blood is typically "old" blood... but bleeding during pregnancy is never something to ignore. Call your OB as soon as possible and make sure s/he listens to you and your concerns. It would be wise to take someone with you to appts... it doesn't have to be your mom... just someone with a little more experience!!
Good luck & have a healthy pregnancy!

Do you have an OB? Have you been getting regular prenatal care? If not, this is VITAL for your baby's and your health.

I'm with Heidi. Take a trusted friend or relative with you to appointments. It always helps to have an extra set of ears when getting medical care.

Keep taking your prenatal vitamins and phone your OB right away if you are bleeding.

I'm NOT a medical expert, but I would think that having sex again shouldn't be on your radar for the time being with recent bleeding. No orgasm is worth putting your baby's life at risk. That's just my opinion and remember that I'm not a doctor.
