One of your ovaries will release an egg (ovulation) about 14 days before your period starts. The first day of your period, when you start bleeding, is counted as the first day of your cycle. If you have a 28-day cycle, you'll usually ovulate some time between day 10
 and day 15 of your cycle.

During your period an egg is usually developing, ready for release mid-cycle. The time it takes for an egg to mature within the ovary can vary. This means that the day you ovulate can also vary from cycle to cycle.

If your cycle is short, 22 days for example, then you could ovulate just days after your period, if your period lasted seven days. The longest that sperm can survive in fertile cervical mucus is seven days. So it may just be possible for you to get pregnant if you ovulate a little earlier than usual.

However, it is more likely that sperm will have a life span of two to three days, even less if there is no fertile cervical fluid. Most pregnancies happen after sex within the five days before, and on the day of, ovulation.

I understand you are trying to conceive. The tests and treatment are adequate.However to increase chances of getting pregnant it is always advised to have intercourse at least every alternate day after periods in the entire cycle, not just 5 days, even when you know the date of ovulation. 

This is because the sperm takes 3 days or 72 hours to travel upto the egg and if you do not have sperm reaching the egg on the day you ovulate, it will be too late by the time you start intercourse and sperm reaches. 

Consult again with Urine Pregnancy Test.
