Brief Answer:
Wait for 2 weeks

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Pregnancy can be detected at least 14 days after the conception.
Conception can occur around ovulation.
Ovulation occurs around day 12-14 of a 28-30 days cycle. Your ovulation might have occurred anywhere between 8-10.
So, I will suggest you to get a urine pregnancy test done around 25-26 March to confirm the diagnosis.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
