Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

Brown spotting is usually unrelated to having intercourse.  Normal spotting occurs right before or after your period.  If the spotting you had was between periods, then it was probably due to hormonal imbalances or stress.  Spotting in general is usually no cause for alarm.  But if it becomes a regular occurrence every month to spot between periods, you should see a doctor.

Having intercourse will not make it worse or effect your reproductive health.
