Variant of normal: Periods can seem to "stop" and "start" and the brown discharge is probably just old blood.

See what happens : It is not uncommon for someone to have an irregular period occasionally. This usually self corrects over the next few cycles. If you continue to be irregular or continue to have excessive bleeding schedule a visit with an obgyn to discuss options for cycle control.

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test . There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.

Unclear question: Pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease are two common consequences of unprotected sex. You may do a home pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex to see if you may be pregnant. To check for STDs you should see a doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine, if you are younger than 27 years.
