Hi, I just received some troubling news today. It seems that I have syphilis and the infection seems to be strong (3 pluses out of four - at least that's how this test is done). I never had any symptoms from what I can remember, and I only found out accidentally because I had to take the test as a legal requirement for the papers I need in order to get married. Both me and my partner have done this test, only that he tested negative (is that even possible, given that we have an active sex life and we don't use any protection other than me taking birth control pills?). We've been together 6 years so what's the possibility of him not getting infected? I haven't been with anyone else since we've been together, so, if the test is indeed positive it must mean I've had it before we met, which scares me because it means it's old and I'm afraid it might have already had affected my organs, which is what I read can happen for untreated syphilis. I have already repeated the test and tomorrow I'll get the results. I understood there's a possibility that it might have been a false positive, but that also this could indicate an auto-immune disease, so I don't know what's better - having old syphilis, or the latter?
I am wondering if it really is possible that my bf didn't get infected in so many years of being together, and I'm also looking for any other kind of feedback.
