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??

Fingers crossed it comes back neg!

I have both LFT and PCR weekly my PCR have always been negative even when LFT look a bit odd like this.

Fingers crossed for you.

Fingers crossed! The first one I would have said was negative but with a hint of a line....who knows. I’m glad you’re getting the pcr though; I would in your position.
Good luck 🤞

@PaleGreenGhost

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.

Sorry to say my story is exactly the same.
Was stressful at the time but grateful that we erred on the side of caution and didn't pass on to others. Take care.

Based on what pps are saying, every lft I've done since January (so over 100 now), has been positive! Seriously, I could see no line until people started to mess around with the colour saturation etc. Hope you enjoy your trip.

I couldn't see a line at all. Surely they are meant to show up without people having to take photos and mess around with the colour on them?

One of my teens had a false positive, just came up when she was fiddling around, perhaps had eaten something prior to testing, was negative on test taken afterwards, and next day and no signs of covid, which she then got a couple of months later. Quite a lot of school kids ended up with one very faint line as a one off which turned out to be nothing, and then when they got covid at a different time point, their lfts were consistent (so say three very faint, then stronger, then fainter).

Basically, you can't tell off one faint test as the tests can produce false positives, you can even make them do that which is also something my children's friends did!

Even PCRs are not infallible as we are now realising, up to 15% of people in early waves tested negative when they had the virus which was not picked up by PCRs as they cleared it so quickly. So interesting but not very reassuring that these tests should be relied on heavily,

@StuckInARug

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 😭

it's very good of you to go to this length to make sure you are safe to fly. I hope karma rewards you!

First test I posted on MN and no one agreed with me that it was positive.

Dark tests are 48 hours later and positive PCR

I can see a line on yours.

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

Good luck Op! Hope you are able to travel. I also haven't been able to get home to see family (in over 2 and a half years now) so I know how disappointing it'd be if you couldn't go.

Exact same for me, tests like those first ones that nobody I sent pics to could see a line in despite the fact I knew it looked like a really faint positive. 48 hours later and thick obvious positive lines on LTFs and a positive PCR.

Hope for OP it’s a false positive though!
