Faint grey line?

Hi, I just used the BioSure test kit and received a strange result. Within 15 minutes I could only see the control line which was a very clear red line, but after a while – I’d say 10-15 minutes after the initial reading, I can make out a grey-ish line that is very faint. Is this a positive result? How visible is this pink line supposed to be? I have seen some results online where this no visible second result, I’m very nervous and confused.

Hi concernedturtle. A positive line would appear as pink/red and the strength is dependant on many variables. It sounds as though the line you are describing is where the positive line has been sprayed however without seeing the test I am unable to confirm this. If you would want to send me a photo of your test please do ( I hope this helps and I look forward to hearing from you. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
