You still have plenty of hope left. Let's see... you have a 27 day cycle and af is due in 10 days. This puts you at about 3 or 4 dpo. An hpt looks for a hormone that is only produced after a zygote implants in the uterus and it takes time for the fetus to produce enough hormone to be detected by an hpt. Implantation ususally occurs 6-10 dpo. The result is that hpts are simply not sensitive enough to detect pregnancy until at least about 10 dpo.

The test you took was probably before implantation, so it was just too soon to test. In general, the closer you test to the day af is due, the more accurate the test anyway.

Bottom-line: don't give up hope. You may yet get a bfp this month.

if your period isn't due until the 31st then a test wouldn't even be close to accurate right now. the earliest you can test is the 27th and even then it won't be 100% accurate.

you would have just ovulated around the 17th. i hope you were getting busy!

If you ovulated on the 18th, then you tested 2 days past ovulation (dpo). The test is very unlikely to detect a hormone change until at least 10 dpo. Wait until at least the 28th to test again. Of course, the test will still be more accurate if you wait until several days past the 28th.
