i did the self test

Hey guys i did the self test a couple of weeks back , cus my head was spinning over a stupid encounter 4 years back . I have ocd too which dont help . I did the test the result was negative . Happy days proper relieved . Only prob im worried about that after bout 5 mins i realised i hadnt pushed the test thing all the way down in the pot . Anyway when i pushed it all the way down the test started and i got the one line which meant negative …. but im really worried now i didnt do the test properly . Do i need to test again . Thanks guys . Mr stressed .com

Hi Mr, you will only get a negative/control line if your test has worked. This line is there as a precaution and shows the user that their test has worked. There is no need to retest and your negative result is conclusive as your exposure was 4 years ago. I hope I have helped to put your mind at rest and thank you for choosing BioSure. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
