Do I need to worry and test for HPV and Syphilis...

Last month I had a sex with a prostitute,and she gave me a blowjob without condom for few minutes,and I had two sex with her with condom each time. And each time use a new condom(but not fully cover my penis,expose very little before scrotum,and glans fully cover ). So may I know if this case do I need to test for HPV and syphilis?Im very scared and worried.

There is a risk for gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and genital herpes type 1, if you don't already have oral herpes type 1.

The risk is much lower than vaginal or anal sex.

You can test for gonorrhea and chlamydia at 7 days, and syphilis at 6 weeks.

You can get a test for hsv1, but it's not terribly accurate - it misses 30% of infections, and won't tell you if it's an oral or genital infection. It will only tell you if you have antibodies for it. It's also not easy to get in a lot of countries. Unless you get sores, I wouldn't bother. Sores typically appear within 2-20 days.

Keep in mind that 67% of the global population has hsv1, and a sex worker isn't any more likely to have oral hsv1 than anyone else.

So I no need to very worried about it?
Nope, I wouldn't. Most experts don't think one act of unprotected oral even warrants testing.

If you can't let it go, then test for peace of mind, but I don't see any real reason to worry.
