Zika virus-wife pregnant
I have been in Fortaleza, Brazil from Nov 18th to Dec 19th. I have reached India on 21st Dec. During my stay i didn't get any fever or rash nor any symptoms of Zika. But I was felt tired and weak for 2 hours on 3rd December and i was normal without any medications. My concern is I had an intercourse with my wife on 23rd December without any condom. My wife is pregnant now, she had her cycle from 25th Dec to 28th Dec. I am not sure i was affected by Zika or not? My question is Do i need to do any kind of test now? I am worried will this affect my kid? What should i do now? Please help me I am scared a lot!!

As u donot have any fever,bodypains,rash no need to worry. U don't need any test. For ur wife also no need of tests unless she has symptoms. However serial ultrasound to be done for her monthly to rule out microcephaly or intracranial calcification
