Flying tomorrow. Is this a positive LFT???
StuckInARug · 02/12/2021 12:18
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??
SheWoreYellow · 02/12/2021 12:48
The same day PCR where I live is £169, not sure what to do! 😫
Do another, with no swabbing, just the liquid, and see why the line looks like, for comparison.

Did you time it? If after the time 15 or 30 min has passed it doesn't count as positive. Check instructions.

I cannot see any lines on either and I've seen positive results.

If this was a pregnancy test, I'd be assuming positive. You can invert the image to get a better view?
OnlyFoolsnMothers · 02/12/2021 13:13
id say negative
Almostmenopausal · 02/12/2021 13:15
Here. I've changed the lighting & saturation etc. Second line highly visible
junebirthdaygirl · 02/12/2021 13:17
My positive showed very clear line with absolutely no doubt. I don't think that's positive
LadyCampanulaTottington · 02/12/2021 13:17
I could see the line in the second one before you inverted it. I think you need to get a PCR OP.
OnlyFoolsnMothers · 02/12/2021 13:17
oh ok now i see it
Frazzled2207 · 02/12/2021 13:18
I think the faint line you can see is just whatever is there to show a coloured line.
As with a pregnancy test I was under the impression that the line needed to be coloured not just a shadow.
Anyway you are good to be getting a pcr. Fingers crossed for negative.
Thisisconfusing · 02/12/2021 13:19
I can definitely see a faint line I’m afraid . I would say this is a positive LFT. We all use flow flex regularly in this house and don’t get the watermark others are describing ( and we are thorough at doing them) . Terrible timing 😢
Almostmenopausal · 02/12/2021 13:20
Slightly more visible here
authenticforgery · 02/12/2021 13:20
I think it's positive. I don't know why people think it has to be as dark as the control line. This was my sons positive. I'd be getting a pcr.
StuckInARug · 02/12/2021 13:22
On my way to the test centre to beg for a same day PCR as there are no bookings online. Flight is 11am tomorrow.
Almostmenopausal · 02/12/2021 13:23
GOOD LUCK!!!! Sending positive vibes x
Sexnotgender · 02/12/2021 13:24
Good luck! I hate this bloody virus.
lulalalala · 02/12/2021 13:26
Prior to having COVID I did a LTF and couldn't work out if there was a super faint line. I was holding it up to the light and everything for a good 5 mins to work out if it was or not. Couple of days later did another LTF and it came up positive after 10 mins. Got a PCR the next day and results in 16 hours later. Positive for COVID!
If you are uncertain I'd just get the PCR test done!!
nitsandwormsdodger · 02/12/2021 13:27
Slightest of shadows but NOT a positive
SpritzingAperol · 02/12/2021 13:30
When my son had Covid his lateral flows just produced dark lines really quickly. As clear as you like. I don't think that line is anything to go by.
Do another one OP.
SpritzingAperol · 02/12/2021 13:31
Seen you are getting a PCR good luck OP.
Cornettoninja · 02/12/2021 13:35
good luck @StuckInARug. What utterly shit timing for you
Mummy7777 · 02/12/2021 13:39
That's not a positive. My husband just recently had covid and his line was strong and remained strong after 15 mins.
StuckInARug · 02/12/2021 13:56
Managed to do the PCR!!! They allowed me to do it today even with a booking for tomorrow!! Will update the thread when I’ve got the results.
Cornettoninja · 02/12/2021 14:01
That’s great news @StuckInARug. I really hope you get a negative 🤞
