Hello and welcome to Healthcaremagic forum!

I would suggest her to have a USG abdomen done soon. Because, that will clear all the doubts. The symptoms that she has are of pregnancy. But let's hope it's not ectopic.

Wishing her good health!

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
