Difficult to say: Although your symptoms could be due to a sexually transmitted disease (STD), and having unprotected sex puts you at high risk for STD. On the other hand, the symptoms you describe could be related to a viral illness and unrelated to your sexually activity. You should be tested for STD as soon as possible and before you are sexually active again. In the future, protect yourself, use condoms.
