Could I have had implantation bleeding and am I pregnant?

I had unprotected sex on December 4th and my period was due around the week of December 13th. I began to have extremely tender breasts for two straight weeks. Then on the week of December 26th I received some light spotting. The next day I had heavy darkish red bleeding (I went through a pad and a tampon) and the next day my flow had become very very light almost to the point where I thought my period had stopped. The last day some brown blood that had returned even after I thought my period was over. I felt a little nausea on the last day and my breasts were a little bit tender. As of now I tried to have sex yesterday and I felt an incredible amount of pain. As well as I had some bright red bleeding right after sex with painful cramps that lasted for the rest of the night. I woke up and now my vulva feels irritated even when I try to put underwear on. So my question is, was the blood I experienced the week of my period actually implantation bleeding? Also why am I feeling pain during sex and why did I bleed? This was the first time I've bleed after sex.

Hi, Anon.

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHER today.

It sounds as though you had a period, though it was perhaps not a typical one (for you). To ease your mind, you may want to take a home pregnancy test. It's the only way to know for sure. Were you feeling irritation before sex? Perhaps you were not wet enough before penetration. It may be that your period (bleeding) was not totally finished. I can't say for sure. I would call your doctor if it persists.
