hiv transmission in asymptomatic syphilis

I had a protected sex encounter 4 times with a lady who didnt even know the meaning of STD's..My condom didnt burst and so I aint scare of getting any semen related STD like HIV, Gonorhea or Chlamidya..However I ve read on expert forum that syphilis can still be transmitted as most of the area uncovered by the condom can get in contact with the syphilis chancre and as far as i remember all 4 times a lot of area was left uncovered by the condom from the base. However its been almost a month and i havent seen any syphilis chancre at the uncovered area..But I also read on the expert forum that many a times the syphilis infection is asymptomatic..so I was wondering that what if I have asymptomatic syphilis and I dont know about it..Can I still contract HIV without the chancre??please help me..

well you did not have a risk to get hiv transmitted to you because you wore a condom..
so the question that you are asking is irrelevant..
continue to practice safe sex in the future..
