Syphilis risk and chancre location

Dear Medhelp Team,

I received unprotected oral sex in China from a CSW about three weeks ago. How likely is it that it is syphilis and how likely is it that the syphilis chancre is developing at a different location than the actual exposed area? I have a sore close to my anus about 3-4 cm away on my right butt cheek and I don't know where it came from. That area was not exposed to any sexual activity except maybe some saliva running down.

I also feel like I have some pressure in my pelvic area and lower abdominal area. I am aware that this sensation is possible due to anxiety.

I am looking forward to your reply. Thanks.

Hi, to contract syphilis she would need to have an active chancre sore and you would need a sin opening for syphilis to enter and it would appear at point of contact so your anal area would not be where a sore would develop.

Dear Life360,

thanks a lot for the quick reply. That is what I thought, but I wanted to make sure.

I got a follow up question. How likely is it to contract any other STD via above mentioned way? I am most worried about Gonorrhoea or Chlamydia. Should I be worrying about any other disease?

Thanks in advance!
