I did an at-home chlamydia test and the result was VERY faint as in barely there, is there a chance that I am not infected?

Unreliable test: All rapid chlamydia tests are highly unreliable, including self-tests for use at home. (Because they are unreliable, no such tests are available or routinely used in some countries, such as the US.) With a "very faint" positive result, your test likely is false. However, if you are at risk for STDs (e.g. non-monogamous, new partner, etc), you should be professionally tested. Good luck! ...Read more
