Solutions For Overcoming Husbands Who Have Repeated Syphilis?
Good afternoon, r nI want to ask, I am 5 months pregnant and at 1 month of pregnancy I got gonorrhea but it recovered within 1 week, but since I was pregnant my husband had 4x syphilis and it has been treated and recurred. How do you treat it?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Syphilis or the lion king is a sexually transmitted disease caused by a bacterium called Treponema pallidum. This disease is transmitted through sexual contact in any form and by body fluids such as blood. In addition to sharing needles with drug users, tattoos and ear piercing can also transmit this disease.
In your husband's case, there are two possibilities. The first possibility is that your husband's syphilis never completely clears up, so the recurring syphilis you mention is actually from the same infection that hasn't gone away. This can happen when the treatment given is not enough for one reason or another. The way to overcome this is to conduct a re-evaluation by a skin and genital specialist regarding the stages of syphilis that your husband has, then provide treatment according to the stages he has. This is important because syphilis is divided into 4 stages, namely primary syphilis, secondary syphilis, latent syphilis, and tertiary syphilis. For more details about the 4 stages you can see here.
The second possibility, your husband will have new infections repeatedly. This is possible because having syphilis does not mean that your body will be protected from the same disease forever. The body will not make immunity against these bacteria. So that if your husband has sexual intercourse with someone with syphilis, or uses a non-sterile needle as we previously said, he can be exposed again. The way to overcome this possibility is of course avoiding sexual relations with sufferers, avoiding unsafe sexual intercourse, and undergoing treatment from the start again regularly.
So our advice to you, bring your husband back to a genital specialist for examination and treatment. Also check yourself, because syphilis in pregnant women can be transmitted to the babies they are carrying. Also tell your husband to avoid risky behavior. Finally, you may also seek a second opinion from another sex specialist to determine whether it is true that your husband's condition is syphilis or something else. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
