STDs have no effect on semen odor, and certainly can have no such effect after being treated. Odor is very subjective; what you perceive as "foul" may not be abnormal. If the appearance (color, constancy, etc) of your semen hasn't changed, most likely nothing is wrong. But see a urologist if you remain concerned about it.
