    You should definately consult a physician as soon as possible. First of all, talk to the girl, ask her if she suffers from any sexual condition. Secondly, try to stay calm, this might be all in your head, sometimes people get sick just by being afraid. And lastly, next time try not having unprotected sex with unknown girls.

    If you need any help further i'll do my best to help.

    anything is possible but you have listed a ton of symptoms which makes me think you are really getting worked up and while not intentionally doing so you are exaggerating the severity. It sounds like you are practically dying and no medical professional would ignore this. This is only going to work against you in terms of getting proper treatment as the focus may shift towards neuroticism. I don't know if you are fine but you really need to stop feeding these thoughts it is destructive. Worry and fear is fine but...

    hey, dont worry. those symptoms doesnt really mean anything.

    also u are new here on this forum, or else u would already read same stories from lots of users.

    mostly its anxiety and negative thought process.

    keep calm and make yourself busy in something as you will forget about this story all symptoms which u saw will disappear automatically.
