Syphillis??

I'm 28 weeks and just had blood work done where they tested for STDs again. The syphillis came back positive. The test came back negative when they did it in October and I haven't had sex since then. Due to other issues, I was advised not to. My husband insists he didn't cheat and I believe him. They are doing another blood test to confirm tomorrow and my ob says pregnancy can cause false positives. I know there should be no way I could have gotten syphillis between October and now but I'm still scared. Has this happened to anyone else?

  • Don't some STD's take awhile to show up after coming in contact? I don't know, wait and see what the dr says

  • OK. POOR THING. YES THAT HAPPENED TO ME, AND I FOUND OUT THAT I HAD IT FOR A REALLY LONG TIME BE FOR I GOT PREGGO. I HAD NO SYMPTOMS WHEN I FOUND OUT I WAS PREGGO. MY HUBBY GOT TREATED AND HIS TEST CAME BACK NEG. WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 8 YRS. SO I MUST HAVE CONTRACTED IT BEFORE THEN. THE GOOD THING ABOUT MY SITUATION WAS THAT IF YOU HAVE HAD IT FOR THAT LONG, IT IS IN A DORMANT STAGE AND IS NO LONGER TRANSMITTABLE TO ANYONE ELSE, NOT EVEN THE BABY. THE REALLY BAD NEWS IS THE TREATMENT FOR SIPHLIS IN THAT STAGE IS VERY PAINFUL. I HAD TO GET LIKE 8 SHOTS IN THE ASS OVER A PERIOD OF TIME BEFORE MY DUE DATE TO TAKE EXTRA PRECAUTIONS THAT THE BABY WOULD BE O.K. THEN AFTER THE BABY WAS BORN TO FINNISH THE TREATMENT. THEY ALSO GAVE THE BABY TREATMENT BECAUSE HIS TITERS WERE HIGH JUST BECAUSE MINE WERE HIGH BEFORE I GAVE BIRTH. BUT HIS TITERS WERE A LITTLE HIGH ONLY BECASE MINE WERE. HUH, ANYWAY, HE WAS TREATED WITH AN I.V DOSE OF

  • It happened to my friend while she was pregnant. Her husband swore he didn't cheat, and she believed him. 6 months later she had a baby, and then 2 months later, so did her husband's girlfriend.
