Pregnancy not likely
Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Your cycles seem to range from 22 days to 41 days.
Since it is only33 days from the last period date, it is likely to be within your ranges.
Delay in periods can be due to pregnancy, stress, or hormonal disturbances like hypothyroidism, hyperprolactemia or polycystic ovarian disease.
If the urine pregnancy test is negative, then the pregnancy is ruled out.
If pregnancy would have been there, the test would have been positive on the day after missed periods.
Inability to conceive can be due to many causes for which the couple should be evaluated for and properly treated.
Hope you found the answer helpful. Please do get back for further queries.
Wishing you good health.
