Urination Pain/Discharge...Trauma During Intercourse?

Hello. My wife is 9 weeks pregnant with our first child. We've been together for about 18 months and have been monogamous (as far as I know). Of course, we both had partners before marriage, but no diagnosed STDs.

During intercourse 5 days ago, I felt like something in her vagina was scraping the bottom of my urethra, especially painful after I had climaxed. I didn't think much of it until I began having painful urination the next day. It continued to worsen, so we visited her midwife/doctor (we're not in the US so medical care is a little different). The doctor put us both on amoxicillin and and put me on another antibiotic and a small orange mystery pill as I was the only one with any symptoms. My wife continues to be asymptomatic.

After 1.5 days of the meds (today), I suddenly developed a light, white discharge. The painful urination continues but is not constant. Sometimes, it hurts, other times it doesn't. My wife is worried about STDs of course, and I am terribly concerned about her and the baby.

The labs are closed over the weekend, so we can't even get a urine test until Monday. Our primary caregiver told us that if I developed discharge, it was likely an STD. Ok, here's the part I don't understand. I had not had sex for multiple years before I met my wife. Oddly, I had just finished a zithromax pack the day before the intercourse incident because I had a nasty upper respiratory infection. In fact, during the past three months, I've been on amoxicillin two times, both less than a week, and taken a 5 day dosage of the z-max. From what I read, both of these drugs are recommended for STDs and in the past few years, I've used z-max two or three times and other antibiotics for oral surgery, an accident, etc.

How is it possible for me to suddenly have this problem when I had just finished my z-max? Is it possible that I've had a latent infection that suddenly popped up? If so, shouldn't the antibiotics have killed it before? We originally thought it was just a simple UTI that I picked up while my immune system was down. Now, with the discharge thrown in, it's a mystery. I realize that we won't know until we see the doctor after the weekend, but I'm hoping someone will see this and offer some insight. It's stressful enough having our first pregnancy, we really don't need this too.
