I have a question. I am 44 years old. Almost 14 years ago, I had unprotected sex and I contacted syphilis. Immediately, I realized and made treatment. Now I'm not contagious, treatment was good even 2 years ago, I repeated again. However every time I repeat the test is positive, although, I repeat I am not contagious.
My question is the following. Me and my wife want to have a baby (I want to mention that my wife does not, and never had syphilis. She did medical tests and they came out good. She knows about the disease I had before we were married).
We can have a healthy baby, and without being affected by the disease that I had?
Syphilis that I had and was treated but persisting medical outcomes may affect child health?
