It is unlikely to develop symptoms within 3 days as the incubation is longer than that with the common stds and much longer with some (weeks). If you transmitted a std you would not have symptoms yet.
You may have gotten something infectious like a bacterial infection, strep throat, sinus infection, etc.
Almost all of the stds start with symptoms in the genital region and not general sore throat and fever.
Are u there?
It looks like you are having problems with the chat page so I will switch to q&a.
it is now over a week and these symptoms persist even with the antibiotic. Is that to be expected please?
Hi my wife is complaining of a sore throat and headache and this morning. I have had no sexual relations with her recently. Could I have passed on this infection please?
Yes this is quite possible but since it is not related to any sexual contact and is likely a common infection she should not suspect anything happened. She should be checked out but this is likely a simple strep throat or similar infection. When she gets checked out there should be no discussion of your sexual activities. This time of the year sinus infections are quite common and spread easily as well as other common infections not related to sexual contact.
Hi - nauseousness and cough are new symptoms. It has been over a week since I had this sex. I am very worried. I have only a few days clarithromycin left, and they do not seem to be helping. If it is not an std how long should this condition persist please?
