Hi, I wondered if anybody could help me? I'm 33+3 weeks pregnant and I was diagnosed with syphilis at 31 weeks but I was negative at the beginning of pregnancy. ive been with my boyfriend for 3 years and I've not had another sexual partner.
In February my boyfriend developed a rash on the tip of his penis, the doctor gave him cream for a fungal infection. It cleared up and we had sex, a few days later I develpoed a sore on my vulva which initially was painless but then became very painful. (Around the same time I started bleeding and was told I had an erosion on my cervix, could this also be the syphilis? I've had 5 bleeds since each time getting worse) My boyfriend developed another rash and lumps on his penis and groin, he had strange spots on his tongue and was feeling unwell. The doctor said he had thrush and gave him cream. He went to the GUM clinic for a blood test which (he said) came back negative. He's recently been for another blood test and we're waiting on the results.
My relationship has broken down because of this and I'm just looking for some answers as to when he might of been infected? Is having sex the only way of getting it? Could he have had it for longer than 3 months and not passed it on to me until now? He won't go to the GUM clinic together to get both medical records up which makes me think he's hiding something. I've asked him all the questions, has he cheated etc but he denies it.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated as I'm devastated.
