She has took pregnancy test and one came back positive with a very faint line and the rest are negative, she has went to the doctor and they have done test but the are neg. too the doctor sent her to get an X-ray but they didn t say anything about her being pregnant or seeing anything is it possible that she might have an ectopic pregnancy and it not show on the X-ray?
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
a faint test line usually indicative of a positive result, as long as the test kit has been interpreted within the given reaction time of specified in the instructions (at 5 minutes).it may be faint also if the urine sample is diluted
sometimes it comes faint due to faulty technique also
but as you have done all the investigations after consulting a doctor and all those tests show negative result so there is no need to worry
wish you a good day and take care
