A:   Your anxiety is understandable. Any thing and everything is possible. Also since this was your first time just a wear and tear are possible and no need to get anxious about it. Keep watching and see whether it settles on its own or persist. However, to be really cautious, it is worthwhile to seek help from your family physician to rule out STDs.
