Probably neither: It is highly unlikely that you have fungal infection or cancer from sex two weeks ago. Even though you had HPV, still get vaccine to prevent infection with other strains of HPV. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex.
