A 31-year-old male asked:

Asking: that question is like asking if my Parachute will open a second time if I jump again without packing it! The way to protect against syphilis is to use prevention and COMMON SENSE about your Partner(s)
My opinion only
BTW Syphilis is a REPORTABLE disease and patients should be treated until clear before they have sexual contact again!
