I know it’s very very very faint and I’m not even sure it’s there. Photo taken 18 minutes after a 15 minutes test. What do you think??

I’m glad you’re enjoying your time with your family @StuckInARug.

Just a thought but are you careful to keep the test flat and move it as little as possible? I get really obvious dye run if I’m not careful to leave it alone for the full fifteen minutes which makes it harder to read.

Can't see anything. Can you take another one?

Just wanted to update everyone - I made it abroad and am here enjoying time with my family. I’ve done more flowflex tests (one before seeing my 95 year old grandmother) and very weirdly I am still getting the same super faint colourless line, it hasn’t changed at all in a week! Maybe there’s something about me that makes that test go weird!!!

I had a faint positive - was much stronger 12 hours later.

You may not have enough hiatal load for a PCR test.

I definitely saw 2 faint lines on those LFTs - my line eyes have been honed through years of TTC and testing! I am however very happy to hear that your PCR came back negative! Enjoy your trip.

Glad you had a negative PCR. I had something very similar... an extremely faint line on LFT that was only discernable in good light... then a negative PCR, which I followed up with a negative LFT the following day (though if I were you I wouldn't do this - just go on holiday!)

@INeedNewShoes

The flowflex nasal only tests seem to be getting a lot of false positives. There's been a thread on MN this morning about it.

I get a faint colourless line every time I do one of these and have done for weeks/months. I've had various PCRs along the way, all negative and the other type of LFT also comes up completely negative.

I'm wondering whether it's that you can see where 2 different litmus papers cross or whether some people's saliva just always gives a shadow where the test line is.

This.

I've noticed that too, and I test all the time


OP
I don't see even a faint line

StuckInARug · 02/12/2021 22:04

Thanks all!! Agreed, no more testing!!!

To the person who asked, the line was completely colourless, just a shadow really! It was on a flowflex test so I’m guessing it’s just one of those things. Thanks for everyone’s support and good wishes!

I had 2 positive LFT tests a few weeks ago …very faint line but darker than your test and PCR was negative…so hopefully you will be ok.

No more tests. A PCR is enough. Have a good time.
