Acquiring syphilis from your experience is unlikely. If you get a sore on your penis or elsewhere on the body, it would be prudent to see your doctor. You may get a syphilis test done in 6 months. Safe sex: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/safer-sex-guidelines

Syphilis is not likely in above scenario. Check cdc.gov for details of syphilis transmission. Condom use remains best for STD transmission and short of abstinence.
