Flying tomorrow. Is this a positive LFT???
162

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??

@StuckInARug What shut timing for you OP! Fingers crossed for a negative result tonight for you 🤞🏼 And thank you for using your common sense and getting a PCR! I can’t believe all the ones on this thread just dismissing it as negative when OP can see a faint line 🙄 better to be over cautious in my opinion!

I think negative. I think there’s something up with the flow flex tests. My DD1 has tested positive every week on one for the last 6 weeks. Her PCR and old style lateral flows are negative.

Before use even if you look very carefully at the test you can see where the two stripes are

I have had problems with the flow flex a few times giving me false positives having to go for PCR and all negative, yet old style are negative So frustrating. Hope you get a negative.

Do a LFT with just water, no swab, if a feint line comes up your kit is dodgy.

I wouldn't necessarily say positive yet if you are reading them after the time limit.
My nephew had a strong positive lft but negative lft, only way to know for sure is do a pcr.

I agree with this.

Always do a control test. It's the scientific way.

Good luck there.

Last time we had covid my son started with one cough and I knew it was the same cough as he'd had the previous time we had covid. At that point he had the faintest of faint lines, so I think you are absolutely right to have the PCR test.

Well done for doing the right thing and I really hope it comes back negative for you.

This is what my lateral flow looked like. My PCR came back positive.

I have packed by suitcase now, my handbag with passport etc, really hoping for the best! Haven’t seen some of my family for 3 years so it would be really disappointing if I didn’t get to travel. But if it’s positive then that’s that 😭

That's what my kid's lateral flow looked like. I read it as negative. Forgot to bin it and looked again that evening and saw a line just like in your pic. He was confirmed positive the day after.

Fingers crossed for you OP. FWIW I can't sometimes see a faint line in mine, bit like what we'd call an evap on a pregnancy test and PCRs have always been negative.
