Hi, If you tested at 85 days your result would be 99.7% accurate as this is around the 12 week window period at which we recommend to test at. If your result was negative, the symptoms described may be totally unrelated but I would recommend going to see your GP about these if they persist (but may just be because it is flu season). Personally, I would not retest as your result at 85 days is reliable and should be taken as a conclusive result. Kindest regards, Becky, BioSURE UK Ltd
