Sore throat, slight itching around penis after unprotected sex with penetration. STD ?

Hello. about 2 months ago, i had unprotected sexual contact with my girlfriend. just as we were about to start the act, I stopped. but there was just a little penetration and ejaculation . a day after, i got a sore throat which lasted about a week. Since then I have been experincing slight itches around the tip of my penis, and once in a while, a pimple on my face. I dont know the std status of my girlfriend, but she suffers from fungi and yeast infections and she also has menstral cramps with a lot of bleeding and long menstral periods. This was my first contact and i am afraid of having contracted an STD. Considering how embarassing this is and my inexperience with sexual issues, what tests can i go for in addition to HIV. And how long should i wait before going for these tests.

Hi there. Quoting you & your self acknowledged inexperience in sexual matters, please note that as you say you 'stopped' before the actual act, there does not seem much to be concerned about. It is more likely than not, given your girlfriend has yeast/fungal issues, that you have a similar problem. Drink lots of fluids/water & flush the system with a beer (alcoholic or not your choice). Take one stat (one time) dose of a combination tablet of fluconazole 200mg combined with 2gm tinnidazole if available with your local chemist & all will be well. Remember to treat your partner similarly. I dont think either of you need go in for any blood tests. Cheers & do practice safe sex henceforth to avoid the fear factor if nothing else..& since you say she is your girlfriend, show more faith in her & talk to her about her sexual history & then decide if you need be worried about an STD. Cheers!
