I received unprotected oral from a woman. A few days later I had some itching on the top of my penis and went to an STD test. the doctor was very fast and didnt take time to really explain to me, of course I will call there again, but they are closed atm.

what happened: he took a urine test and a sample from the top of my penis. he came back with the result that my urine was clean, but that in the sample they found something and he said it was urethritis. he gave me antibiotics and I was out there, it all happened to fast for me.
he said they will do further dna investigation and "dony worry you woll be fine". However I am still worried after looking online.

now my question is, what do I have to fear? can it be herpes or is that outrules because he said it was urethritis (which seems to have many subcategories). some more info on what I could expect would be helpful. also that they didnt find anything in my urine is that a good or a bad thing?
