Do i Have STD ?

I am a healthy 22 Years Old Male

I went to massage parlor and i received BJ / Oral Sex.
after the BJ i feel refreshed and didn't feel anything wrong.
after arriving home i take a quick shower and sleep,
the problem happens after that, when i wake up i have STD Symptoms that similar to Flu Symptoms
after i ask some member of my family they said they has been sick for 2 days.

I am worried that i caught STD instead of the Flu that my other family member had
The Question is

can STD Symptoms shows 8 hours after sexual exposure ?
Is there something i need to do to prevent infecting my other family member ?
Is it fine for me to touch my 4 months little sister ?

While I'm not a doctor, I can tell you some positive things.  First, from receiving a bj, there is nothing you could have picked up at all that would be transmittance to your 4 month old sister or anyone else by touch std wise.  From a BJ, common risks are syphilis, genital herpes (hsv 1 or 2), chlamydia and gonorrhea are also possible but I believe less likely.  Another possibility is trochonomiosis but that's less common in men I believe.

No std should produce symptoms next day, earliest would be within two days generally but that's still quick.  To know for sure if you picked anything up you'd want to have an std screening but you'd need to wait some time before many stds would be noticed. That ranges anywhere from generally a few weeks to a few months depending on the std you want checked.  

Based of the scenario, I'd expect the flu to be the likely cause but a doctor should be able to confirm that now or at least give some input.

Of the stds above the only one to produce flu like symptoms is herpes but it wouldn't happen that quickly.
Thank you for your answer,
I feel a bit relieved,
While i also hope / believe flu is the most likely cause,
Just in case that i got herpes but still in the window period
is there anything i need to avoid to reduce the risk of infecting other family member ?
for example sharing spoon , sharing towel etc.

Just for Additional Info The Symptoms I had :

Shortness of breath
Pressure on Stomach
Groin Itch / Irritation ( this one happen before sexual exposure/ probably Jock Itch)
Sore throat

So far , There is no symptoms in my genital except for groin itch / irritation , there is no pain when urinating ( normal )

No STD would cause shortness of breath or vomiting/nausea.

I'm not sure if you mean your actual stomach when you mention the pressure, or if you mean your lower pelvic area, or what, but if you mean your actual stomach, no STD causes that, either.

As John said, no STD would give you symptoms this quickly. The absolute minimum is 2 days, and that's not that common.

You need to see a doctor if you have a fever and it's still lingering, and you have shortness of breath. No STD causes these, but something is happening, and you need to find out what.
Thank you for your answer.
My fever is down a little now after taking some medication.
After some time thinking the shortness of breath is probably me having a anxiety attack.

That aside, What about The Oral ? Can some STD infected through a BJ ?
When should i go to the doctor and check for STD Screening Test  ?
Also can STD infected through a rash from tinea cruris ( jock itch ) ?
Did you use a condom for the oral sex?

If you didn't, you can get gonorrhea, NGU, syphilis and genital herpes type 1 from receiving oral sex.

Syphilis isn't that common, and your partner would have had to have a sore in their mouth to transmit it. You wouldn't see symptoms of this for 10-90 days, but the average is 21 days, and you'd get a sore called a chancre. This doesn't cause burning, pain, discharge, etc. You can test for this at 6 weeks. If you get symptoms, but test negative at 6 weeks, test again at 90 days, and get to the doctor as soon as you see symptoms.

If you don't already have herpes type 1 (think oral sores, like cold sores but not canker sores), then you could get genital herpes type 1 from receiving oral sex. This can happen even if the person performing oral doesn't have a sore, but it's more likely if they do. The time from infection to symptoms is usually 2-12 days, but the average is 4 days. You can test for this now, and then again at 4 months to make sure you don't have it. If you test positive now, it's a pre-existing infection that you had before this encounter. About half the adult population has this, and 90% don’t know it. Ask for a type specific IgG blood test.

You'd see symptoms of gonorrhea at about 2-5 days, and this would usually be a discharge, burning, etc. Some people don't get symptoms. You can test for this as early as 3 days, but 5 days is better. You can have a urine test or a swab test.

NGU is an infection in the urethra that is caused by anything other than gonorrhea (nongonococcal urethritis urethritis, sometimes called NSU, for non-specific). This can be caused by normal mouth bacteria entering the urethra, and the symptoms and testing times are the same as gonorrhea.

I wouldn't worry about any of this unless you see symptoms.

Having symptoms of jock itch may increase your chances for getting an STD, but it's not really known how much. If you have symptoms of anything, you shouldn't be having any kind of sex. You can pass this on to your partner, or introduce other germs into your skin, making things worse for you.
