Are you sure you ov'd when you think you did ?
Even OPK's can only tell you you're getting your surge they don't confirm ov, only a progesterone test or a BBT rise can do that ,
a change of 7 days in luteal phases not something that normally happens though it should only change by a day or two max from month to month , so maybe you either didn't ov when you think you did (perhaps had a surge but then didn't ov and your body tried again later ) so aren't quite due AF yet,
or possibly are pregnant but the tests aren't showing it, either because it is still too early because you did ov late or just because your urine levels of HCG are lower than your blood levels
If it doesn't show in a day or two I'd probably test again and then see your GP if its still negative and see if they'd be willing to do a blood HCG test , some will some won't and will just say test again in a week if no AF , hope you find out whats going on soon though as it must be really frustrating xx

I know exactly to the hour when I ov I seem to be one of those unfortunate people who not only have to overdose on pain killers for first few days of af just to stop the pains from getting so bad that you throw up and pass out but also experience bad pains at ov so I am bent double for a few hours getting worse just before ov and sometimes lasting up to 12 hours. double ov is a bugger likely this happens infrequently. gynea says I just unlucky. sometimes I think more like cursed
