Doxycycline after unprotected sex

Hi, I had unprotected sex with a girl I picked up a few weeks ago. After the event I was so worried that I started taking 2x100mg of Doxycycline each day. I had this medicine left over from a trip to asia as it is also a malaria drug. I have now been taking it for 11 days, even if I had caught Chlamydia or Gonorrhea would the drug have cleared it up by now. I have had no symptoms. also would this have cleared up any syphilis infection that I may have picked up.

Many thanks for any answers and help

You should never self medicate.  You don't even know if you had any STD

And to add to that, doxycycline does not treat ALL std's
