How long after treatment do you become non-contagious?
I tested positive for syphilis with a 1:8 titer last week and received my first bicillin shot.  Since I haven't been symptomatic to my knowledge and none of my partners were found in the reporting registry, I have been told I need a total of 3 consecutive weekly shots.  

My questions are:
1) How long after treatment am I no longer contagious?  
2) How long after a complete series of shots can I expect to see a 1:8 titer decrease to NR status?  
3) Since I don't know when it was contracted, the only information I have is the titer.  Is is possible that I could be in the early latent stage and still only have a 1:8 titer or does that denote an earlier stage, even though I'm asymptomatic?

Thanks very much for any information you can provide!
