What is the difference between implantation bleeding and spotting ?

How can I tell the difference between implantation bleeding and spotting or breakthrough bleeding due to a missed pill? I started a new job overnights a few months ago and my timing on my pill has been inconsistent. I know I missed a pill last week, but I have missed a pill in previous months and not had any bleeding.

Inconsisteny for taking pills have a chane for failure and getting pregnant. But if you missed one pill take it on second day. If again missed on second day please have extra precautions as using condoms etc. Copper T is best options for the one incosistent taking pills. Implantation bleeding and breakthrough bleeding as such not differentiated easily. But ultrasound scan can make it.
Have a Healthful Day..
