Extremely faint test line

Hi I had protected vaginal sex with an escort but decided to get tested using the approved test in Australia called the ATOMO rapid test. I have tested four times. Once at six weeks, once at nine weeks and two at 12 weeks plus. On the very last test I noticed upon inspection of a photo that I took of the test an extremely faint, colourless line near the test section. It is not pink or red, rather like an extremely faint shadow. Is this just where the strip has been sprayed?

Hi, we may have already spoken. But as this is not a BioSURE test, you may well want to speak to someone at Atomo. Kind regards Gary Carpenter

Hi Test2000, Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Unfortunately, I have no knowledge of the ATOMO test and would be hesitant to comment on the reliability of your results. I would recommend that you get in contact with the suppliers of the test to find out more. Hope this helps! All the best, Becky
