    Good morning. Using blood and highly sensitive strips one can test positive as early as one week post fertilisation. But symptoms usually don't set in until about 4 weeks after though this varies for everyone. Sorry about the fever and way you feeling. You should take paracetamol and go to a lab to test for malaria. After then you can treat based on the outcome. Using any of the ACT based drug, even if you are pregnant it's safe. If symptoms persists please see a doctor. Meanwhile continue utilising your fertile periods and monitor your cycle using the planner on upper right of this app. I wish you success in that.
