how can you catch syphilis? does it matter if the guy cums or not or if there are no sores are anything?

my ex- b/f ( as of 3 days) decided toring me up this afternoon and tell me he's got syphilis + i don't know if i have it too. i am going to the doctor's tomorrow to get checked out but i just wondered if anyone on here had any info???

:confused:

    Maybe he didn't know himself? If he did then that is really sad.

    Perhaps it may be cold comfort in the interim till you get the test results back from the lab but for what it's worth, at least if its only syphillis you have little to worry about since it's one of the STD's that modern medicine knows how to cure. Thank goodness for Penicillin!

    Anyone can catch syphilis if they are sexually active.

    Welsh, go and get yourself checked out as soon as you can. Remember it is a treatable condition if you test positive. But also remember that some people ring up their exes and tell them they have an STI out of spite sometimes.

    Morrocan Roll, Please tone down your personal attacks on people's posts. Its one thing to politely disagree or even correct a wrongly held belief, its another to call persons outright ignorant.

    I am quite extensively read in many areas of sexuality, given that it is a strong interest of mine to be informed on a spectrum of issues and subjects. If ive missed some new revelations on syphillis I do humbly apologise, however my point remains valid when compared to STD's such as Herpes Symplex II or HIV. I dont think even you could deny that Syphillis has long been treatable and in many many cases curable by modern medicine as opposed to the other two abovementioned infections that are incurable even today.

    My point was more one of comparison than anything else.

    So frankly, Id invite you to put a lid on the rudeness, thanks.

    As a postscript to my comment above, and to rebutt morrocan roll's sensationalistic claims, I refer anyone here to this info page from the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) in the US:

    http://www.cdc.gov/nchstp/dstd/Fact_Sheets/Syphilis_Facts.htm

    And to quote from that report:


    "Is there a cure for syphilis?

    Yes! A single dose of penicillin, an antibiotic, will cure a person who has had syphilis for less than a year. Larger doses are needed to cure someone who has had it for longer than a year. For people who are allergic to penicillin, other antibiotics are available to treat syphilis. There are no home remedies or over-the-counter drugs that will cure syphilis. Penicillin treatment will kill the syphilis bacterium and prevent further damage, but it will not repair any damage already done. Persons who receive syphilis treatment must abstain from sexual contact with new partners until the syphilis sores are completely healed. Persons with syphilis must notify their sex partners so that they also can be tested, and, if necessary, receive treatment"

    You must be relieved, and I'm glad for you that it was a false alarm. That doesn't excuse what this guy did. It's a sad fact that there are some sick people out there... Now go and have a damn good Friday night! Oh, and here's a *hug* cos I think you deserve it!!
