Not likely : Unless you had surgery for something very serious and complex is not likely to affect your menstrual cycle for such a long time.

Yes: Surgery is a controlled trauma to the body & the combination of surgery/anesthesia can disrupt the normal hormone patterns of the menstrual cycle especially of ovarian cyst drainage is involved. The regularity usually returns within 2-3 cycles.

Repeat test: Repeat the pregnancy test. If you were pregnant it would be positive by now. If it is negative still then you are not pregnant.
