Thank you for your question.

There is a possibility of infection with chlamydia even if you do not have a discharge or pain when passing urine.

I would recommend that you should have a urine PCR test for chlamydia.

If proven you will require a course of an antibiotic to cure this.

I thought it took a few days for an std to show up. I got the irration 2 minutes after having sex
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 5 months ago.

It is UNLIKELY, I agree, to be an STD as STDs will take a few days.

But at times STDs can be deceptive.

Diseases do not read books.

It could be just an irritation in your penis due to a minor sexual trauma, in which case it can take up to a couple of weeks to heal up.

But if it does not heal up and your symptoms persist then you need to be seen.
