Not an STD: First, there is no std that would cause the symptoms you describe. Second, tests done after ten weeks for gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, syphilis all should be valid. Hiv does not present this way but if you are in any way concerned a repeat HIV test may be advised. A burning or sore throat is not a symptom of any std. ...Read more
