how likely is it for a person who has contracted syphillis to contract hiv from the syphillis exposure?

Response from Dr. Young

Anytime there's been exposure to one sexually transmitted disease, there's risk of transmission of a second (or third).

Thus, if one has contracted syphillis, there is risk of acquiring HIV. How likely is difficult to quantify, since this is dependent on many factors.

Like always, the only way to be sure about this is go get tested. BY
