How effective is treatment?

Posted , 3 users are following.

How do you get passed the worry that every symptom is an infection? I lived my first 35 years clean and in a 2 month span I was diagnosed with syphilis and Chlamydia at 2 separate times. Now every little thing I feel or see is a symptom. I have not had any contact since the Syphilis diagnosis and treatment but now I even worry if my treatment worked 😦. How effective is the bicillin shot? my chlamydia was retested and i was negative after treatment. my doc said to wait 6 months to retest for syphilis but I'm worried and now even think about HIV (last 2 tests were negative) HELP 😦
