Is it possible not to menstruate, even if one ovulated?

I am TTC and according to my doctor I ovulated around D13. A D21 progesterone confirmed ovulation (Prog=38.6).
However, it is D33 of my cycle and I have not got myperiods yet.
A pregnancy test done yesterday (D32) was negative.

Should'nt I have got my periods on D27 if I did not conceive (14 days after ovulation)?

My normal cycle days were 24-26 days.

Kindly tell me what's the possible reason for delay if I am not preggies.

No. If you ovulated, you will get a period. Your cycle may just be delayed due to other reasons (stress, medication, etc). It is however possible to get your period and not ovulate!
