In brief: Yes, depending

on what STD it is.
Herpes incubation period can be as short as 2 days. Gonorrhea can cause symptoms within 2 days or be assymptomatic, although infection exists. Pubic lice can cause symptoms within one day. Chancroid can also show symptoms within days. It is best to go see your primary care or OB-Gyn physician for testing to be sure.
