Hey man!: Cloudy urine means nothing. You haven't listed your temperatures, but if you're not frankly in the "fever" range, I doubt this is a sign of sickness. Glad you're STD-negative.

Like to be UTI!: Urinary tract infection(uti) is common after sexual activity in the young females. Your symptoms of frequent urination and painful urination are indicative that you have bladder infection. This will require a short course of antibiotics through your family doctor(gp).
