Too soon to worry: There is no STD that causes symptoms immediately upon contact with such new STD germs. Germs take time to grow and multiply... and then cause bodily damage that is experienced as signs and symptoms of an infection. Couples should talk about their STDs or lack of STDs, before doing their sexual activities. Otherwise, it's "after the fact".
