Could a woman ovulate and still get a negative with the ovulation predictor kit? I have the ewcm (egg white cervical mucus), pains in the lower abdomen, and the temp rise.?

In brief: Yes

Ovulation predictor kits detect luteininzing hormone (lh) that accompanies the release of an egg but are inaccurate in some women.
Basal body temperature (bbt), pain (mittelschmerz) and cervical mucous may also represent ovulation but vary widely. Ultrasound or electronic aids (clearblue easy, ovwatch or ovcue) are also available. However, only pregnancy is an absolute indicator of ovulation.

In brief: Yes

It depends on whether you might have missed your ovulation time.
Many patients can either ovulate earlier or later than might be expected. A Progesterone level approximately 7 days after your clinical findings of ovulation can assess whether you had truly ovulated.
