Disclaimer

i've had three rpr test since january at 2 week 8, and 14 weeks all non reactive is there any reason i should think i have syphilis?

No: With 3 negative RPRs since January, there is no reason to suspect syphillis unless you just contracted it. There is much more risk of false positive test results with RPR than false negatives. Hope this helps.

ANA: This will not detect the presence or absence of syphilis. If you had a negative RPR the overwhelming probability is that you have not had syphilis.

Rpr: It should be rechecked in 4 to 6 weeks with no history of the disease in the past or sexual contact with someone who had it.

Stop worrying: This concern is not realistic. If you are concerned about the rare false negative rpr, ask for a fta-abs
