Patient :Hi, I had unprotected oral sex two days ago and I now have flu-like symptoms: sore throat, fever, chills, and body aches. This was the first time I had sex. I read that std symptoms usually do not appear this early (we did use protection for penetrative sex). I will get tested in a few days, in the meantime should I be worried? I didn't think so until the fever started. Does it seem likely I have an STD, or did I just get a cold from being exposed to foreign bacteria?
