Please help! I’m waiting to get a cal from an infectious disease expert to make an appointment.
Nov 2018 I was diagnosed with syphilis and treated with 3 rounds of penicillin. My titers were 1:128
December 2019 I became pregnant and was tested again and my titers came back 1:32
April 2020 (28 weeks pregnant) I was retested because my doctor suggested it and my titers were 1:32 again. She said I needed to be treated again and I received another 3 rounds of penicillin injections.
August 2020 I was rested and my values increased to 1:64.
I have been 100% safe (always using a condom) besides with my long term boyfriend who has been testing negative this entire time (since Nov 2018). I did have completely protected sex once with a guy March 7th 2020. And as stated was my titers remained the same BEFORE I was retreated.
My question is why would my titers rise AFTER treatment even though I’ve had no new sexual partners and my baby daddy has consistently tested negative.
Each test was performed by the same doctor and exact same test was done. She’s not referring me to an infectious disease specialist but I may not be able to be seen for a few weeks. What could possibly make my titers rise besides new infection which I’m 100% sure it isn’t.
