Anxiety over period vs. Implantation bleeding

I've suffered from anxiety problems for quite a while now. Usually it's about my health. Two months ago I had a pregnancy scare that was brought on for no good reason, since the boyfriend and I never go unprotected and are very careful. My paranoia over one little symptom escalated into numerous symptoms and six negative pregnancy tests and a doctors visit later, I was finally convinced that I wasn't pregnant.
I got nervous again about a week ago. I knew I was being irrational but I bought two home pregnancy tests (e.p.t.) to ease my mind. The first was negative, and the second I took the day my period was due, also negative.
However, my anxiety is trying to convince me that this is not my period, it's implantation bleeding. I KNOW how irrational this is, since I'm three days into my period and everything seems pretty typical. Everytime some part of me feels off (a little gas, a slight abdominal ache, no appetite, being exhausted) my mind instantly jumps to pregnancy and I'm just so sick of it. Would anyone want to help ease my mind? I know implantation bleeding isn't the same as getting your period, but what are the specific differences? Would e.p.t. Test be accurate enough on the days I took them?
