Is this my period?

Patient : I am wondering if what I'm going through is implantation bleeding, a weird period or just withdrawal bleeding. My last period wAs on the 25 and on the 10th of this month I had sex. I am on birth control but we didn't use a condom. I'm not very good at taking my pill at the same time and I'm on a low dosage pill due to migraines. This month I had missed a few pills and a few days after having sex I started having painful soreness in my breasts. As the days went on I noticed a few other pregnancy symptomS: nausea, fatigue, frequent urination, and mood swings. A two days before my period usually starts I noticed dark brown spotting which was ver scanty and light, only when I wiped. This has been going on for 4 days but today became a bit heavier and turned dark red. Although it's heavier it's still nothing like my normal periods and is barley heavy enough for a pad. I am conFused as to wether or not this may be implantation bleeding, withdrawal bleeding from birth control, or just a weird period. I won't be able to get my hands on a home pregnancy test until next week and would really like some professional input.
