As an aside, if you are worried about syphilis, most likely you are having unprotected intercourse (no condom). You should start using a barrier method such as a condom during sex, and also see your regular doctor to make sure that you don't have any sexually transmitted diseases. If you can't bring this up with your family doctor (and believe me, they've heard it all before, so don't feel embarrassed), you can also get checked at your local Planned Parenthood clinic.
