If you took 6 pregnancy tests, and they all came back positive, it sounds to me like you may have had a miscarriage.  That would be consistent with the heavy bleeding.  Once the pregnancy stops developing, it stops producing  pregnancy hormone, which could explain why your pregnancy test was negative at the hospital.  We often refer to this type of pregnancy as a chemical pregnancy.  Back in the days before the super sensitive home pregnancy tests, people would have just thought that their period was late.  Now we know that many many people lose very early pregnancies.  It is actually a good sign though, that your fertility has returned.  After using an implant, that can sometimes take up to 18 months.  Its a good possibility that you will get pregnant again very soon!
Good luck!
