I'm not sure the nature of the relationship of the person you're having sex with, but if you have unprotected sex, you could have contracted an infection, assuming the relationship is not monogamous. If you were both tested before having sex, and you both came back negative  for STIs, and only have sex with one another, then you wouldn't have contracted anything. Your symptoms are similar to those of UTIs, but it's always better to get your doctor to test you for any problems that might be occuring. Even if it is a UTI, you'll need to see yoru doctor to get a prescription for the antibiotics. You're docotr is there to help you, and remember they have to uphold your privacy.
