Help! UTI or something worse!

A few days ago I had unprotected sex with my partner of over a year. I noticed during foreplay that he had a slight irritation on his shaft that was unusual. I asked him about it immediately and he explained that he had recently returned from a beach wedding in the Caribbean and that he had gotten some sand in his trunks that had irritated his genitals. It didn't appear serious and I have no reason to think he was lying about it. Yesterday it started to sting a bit when I urinated and today I have a very heavy, clear and foul smelling discharge. I'm so embarrassed because it is an overwhelmingly awful smell, like sour milk. Things of note:
I am ovulating this week
I was tested for all major STDs at my annual exam 2 weeks ago, and was negative for everything.

Am I overreacting about this? Would these types of symptoms arise so soon for an STD?
