Protected Oral with transsexual prostitute

Hey guys , two days ago I had received oral from a trans street prostitute , had a condom on the entire time from start to finish. lightly pecked twice on her lips with closed mouth. I know it was extremely risky behaviour and now I am anxious. What risks of ANY STIs am I running ? I am worried about syphillis / herpes / HPV as her mouth might have been in contact with parts not covered by a condom…. And if so when is the soonest I can get tests done ?

This isn't actually "extremely risky behavior".

Oral sex is lower risk than vaginal or anal sex, and you used a condom. The chances of you getting anything from this are very low.

The only real possibilities are genital herpes type 1, if you don't already have oral herpes type 1, and syphilis.

To get syphilis, she'd have to have a sore on her lips where they touched your skin.

HPV is possible, but not likely. It's not typically on the lips as it is in the mouth.

Kissing her quickly on the mouth isn't going to transmit anything if she doesn't have a sore.

I wouldn't worry at all about this.

Regarding herpes and syphilis , are the chances low there too ? Should I get tested and if yes how soon , thanks a lot !
Yes, the chances are low - oral sex is low risk.

Did she have a sore on her lips? If not, I wouldn't bother testing.

If you can't rest, test for syphilis at 6 weeks. There are false positives on the herpes tests, so don't bother with those. Your risk isn't high enough to warrant that kind of anxiety.
And if I have contracted something , approximately how many days would it take to show up ? Thanks a tonne for your previous reply !
For herpes, on average 2-12 days. However, you could already have oral hsv1 and not know it. I really wouldn't worry about this.

A syphilis sore shows up anywhere from 10-90 days, but the average is 3 weeks.
I should add that I wouldn't worry about syphilis, either.

I wouldn't worry at all. Most experts don't think a single act of unprotected sex warrants testing, and yours was protected.
Thanks a lot for the help , idk or remember if she had a sore on her lips or not so I’ll be getting tested as you said at week 6 for a full panel just for my peace of mind , this 6 week time window is enough or do I need to delay it further for a definitive result ?
Delay it for other STIs I mean ^
You'd remember if she had a syphilis sore, I assure you.

6 weeks is definitive.

You do not need to test for gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, hep B, etc - the only thing I'd even remotely suggest testing for is syphilis, and that's a big stretch, and only for peace of mind.
Alright , I’ll get tested just as a precaution as I’ve not tested before ( STI Tests aren’t as regular in India ), for a full panel test how long after the act would I need to wait for definitive results  ? Thanks for being so patient with my persistent questions !
There is really no such thing as a "full panel STI test" - that's the biggest myth in all of STI history.

If you want to test for STIs, get gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and HIV.

There is no test for men for HPV. Talk to your doctor about the HPV vaccine. I don't know what the requirements are for it in India. Some countries only vaccinate women, or people of certain ages.

As I said before, there are issues with herpes tests, and if you know that going in, and can get a type specific IgG blood test, do that. If it's any other test - an IgM, a combo test that doesn't specify whether or not you have 1 OR 2 OR both, don't get it.

You may have been vaccinated for Hep B. Talk to your doctor about that. If they aren't sure if you have, you can get a test to show if you have. If you haven't, you can get vaccinated.

Another STI  - mycoplasma - is becoming more common in the US. I don't know how common it is in India. Ask your doctor.

At 6 weeks, they will all be conclusive.
Got it thanks auntjessie!
You're welcome. :)
