Had unprotected sex with genital herpes infected person. Upset stomach, belching, no appetite. Symptom of herpes?

Stupidly had unprotected sex 5 days ago with someone who has genital herpes (no outbreak ). Started having an upset sour stomach feeling with belching about 3 days ago that hasn t gone away. No nausea , but i dont feel like eating much. Food just seems to make it worse. No fever or any other symptoms to mention. Could this be a symptom of genital herpes or another std? How soon would i be seeing symptoms?

Thanks for posting your query.
After reading the complete problem, let me reassure you first that none of your symptoms are related to herpes.
To explain you simply genital herpes manifests itself as small vesicles(blisters) which remains for a day or two and then forms painful ulcers which heals in 5-7 days of period. These vesicle can appear within 3-14 days of exposure.
In your symptoms basically you have problems related to digestion and there are no any symptoms related to skin. These symptoms also appears to be due to excessive of stress which you have taken in your mind.
Kindly relax yourself as there is nothing related to any of the STD's including herpes. Do take care next time and always use protection.
Hope these informations will relax you.
With good health wishes

HIV AIDS Specialist Dr. S. Murugan's  Response
Welcome to HCM.
Sore stomach, belching are not symptoms of Genital Herpes.
Having sex in the absence of Herpetic lesions over genitals is not necessarily infectious unless there is a viral shedding following a recent recurrence.
If you are not getting symptoms within two weeks of risky exposure, you can consider yourself free from Genital Herpes infection.
Have a happy day.
