STD from contact with semen?

Patient : I'm probably just being paranoid but here is my situation. I was in a public restroom using a toilet I sat down only to realize that my penis had come in contact with the side of the bowl, normally not a big deal but I realized there was semen on the side of the bowl and it was now on my penis. I was immediately disgusted and cleaned myself quickly. My question is should I get myself tested for STDs? I'm trying to have a baby with my wife and I really want to be cautious. I will probably get tested either way but just wondering what my odds are. Thanks in advance.
