I had sex with a friend drunkenly and i am not sure if he finished inside of me (the condom was almost off) but i did feel cum on inside of my thighs after sex. the day after my thighs were sore (i assumed from sex) a few days after i had a headache for a day and i would not consider my throat to be sore but just congested, i feel like theres a ball in my throat when i swallow. i am so worried i have contracted herpes and i am freaking out. please help.
your symptoms sound more like a cold than they do anything std related.
protected sex is a risk for syphilis, herpes and hpv. have you had your gardasil shot series yet? you can test for syphilis after 6 weeks post encounter and herpes after 3 months if you need peace of mind.
Initial infection can sometimes present with fever, body aches, etc but those wouldn't be the only symptoms you'd have. You'd also show symptoms genitally. Like Grace said, this is likely just a run-of-the-mill cold or sinus issue.
