Genital herpes?: Herpes is possible with these symptoms, and genital herpes often appears more than 2 years into a monogamous relationship. Either of you could have been infected previously without symptoms. See a doctor ASAP -- accurate diagnosis and effective treatment both depend on getting started ats early as possilble. Good luck.

Itchy: Probably good idea to be checked. If itchy though a common reason for these symptoms would be a yeast infection. Although given partners history getting checked would be a good idea.

It is a bit early for STD symptoms, but never say never. An exam today or asap makes sense. If your STD testing is negative, consider a repeat test 3 months from the exposure even if today's symptoms are unrelated. Testing too early can sometimes lead to false negative results, though in this case I think yeast is more likely than an STD. Agree you should be examined.
