It sounds as though you have nothing to worry about. What do you mean by unprotected sex? From what you have said in your question your girlfriend was taking Microgestin so provided she has been taking it correctly you will have been protected from pregnancy. If "unprotected" means you weren't using a condom then you are exposing each other to STI's (sexually transmitted infections) Most of the time, vaginal discharge is perfectly normal. The amount can vary, as can odor and color (can range from clear to a milky white-ish), depending on the time in your menstrual cycle. Menstrual blood often starts and finishes brownish in color and more reddish in the middle. Spotting, which commonly occurs with birth control pills is often brownish in color. If the color, smell, or consistency seems significantly unusual, especially if it accompanied by vaginal itching or burning, you could be noticing an infection or other condition and should consult a doctor.
