syphilis reinfection

Apr 15, 2013

I was diagnosed and treated for syphilis last year. My partner was however negative for the test and so at some point we had an unprotected sex. This year we both tested and I came positive and him still negative. Could that be the reinfection on my side?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Yes, reinfection is possible.

In health,


Deep ORAL sex. Please kindly assess risk.
