Should i get STD from vaginal discharge?

Hi, I recently has sex with an escort and I wore a condom there was no blowjob, oral sex or anything of that sort but after sex there was a bit of what I think was vaginal secretion on my pubic hair(Not touching the shaft or anything close to it, just kinda hanging out in my pubic hair). Being the way I am first I got toilet paper and carefully got most of it off as possible then proceeded to wash the pubic hair area with antibacterial soap. My question is how likely is it to contract a STI from this situation?

Hello. Thank you for writing to us at healthcaremagic

A condom protected sex is always safe in terms of STD's as compared to an unprotected sexual encounter. STD's like HIV, Gonorrhea and Chlamydia are largely prevented by a condom.
However, a condom does not provide 100% protection against all STD's and certain STD's like Genital Herpes, Syphilis, Genital Warts, Molluscum contagiosum etc can still be transmitted by skin -to-skin contact with infected genital surfaces.
Therefore, I suggest you to get yourself tested for herpes and syphilis at appropriate intervals.
Testing for herpes is earliest at 2 weeks with antibody based ELISA. The incubation period of syphilis is 21 days on an average. Syphilis can be tested earliest at 1 month with an RPR/VDRL.
I suggest you to visit a sexual health specialist for counselling and appropriate testing.
