STD question (6 weeks till symptoms?)

Hi

6 weeks ago I made a poor choice and had unprotected sex. I did not have any sexual activity for several months before or after this experience.

Last night I showed the first sign of an STD...small about of penile discharge.

This morning there was more discharge present, so I went into immediate care center. Doctor took a swab from my penis and I was given an anti biotic shot along with perscription for doxycycline as my Doctor feels I have a Gonorrhea/ clymadyia.

My question/concern is, after all the research I have done...it says symptoms for these STDS appear within 2 weeks....yet I did not experience any discharge until a full 6 weeks after contact. Could something else be going on?

Thanks for your help

Symptoms normally start at 5-14 days but sometimes it is a little longer. I would not guess a STD but possible that it could be.
