Brief Answer:
Probably nothing to be worried, you can do some examinations for confirm.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I understand your concern.

In my opinion you can fear the Zika virus only if you have been bitten by a mosquito or if you have symptoms.

Some of the possible symptoms can be rash, joint and muscle pain or headache.

In this case you should do a blood test and a urine test before trying to conceive.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
