Excited but unsure
My last period was on 20 Jan. I stopped triphasil a month ago. Yesterday i went to see my doctor as i thought i was coming down the flu. Turns out I have a upper body viral infection (headache, back ache, sore throat). My doc refused to do a preg test as he said that it was too early. However I did a home test myself last night and there was a faint second strip. Do you think that I am pregnant?

You may well be pregnant, but it is a bit early. Repeat it in a few days.
