Do you need both lines of cross on clear blue for positive

Hi, please could someone help - sorry if I am being thick.
I went to Tesco this morning to buy a pregnancy test as I was due on yesterday though ovulated late so would be 12dpo. They only had clear blue easy in the shop.
One line of the cross is dark and the other is very faint, is this positive? Do you need both lines to be the same for a positive result?
Thank you

CB have several types but it really should tell you on the box.

If it needs a cross I think that test is negative. If it needs a horizontal line then positive but you really need to look at the box.

Ps I also had what I thought was a faint cross & turned out negative. Blue lines are horrid. Try a pink line test.

Can you take another picture? It's difficult to see with the light on it.

I think I can see a faint vertical line but it's hard to say for definite because the photo isn't too clear.

Could you take another photo from a different angle?

The reflection makes it difficult to see, but if there is a vertical line of any strength in the cross window, and it appeared within the time limit, then yes it's a positive. The two lines of the cross do not have to be equal strength.

For example, these are all positives.
