Syphilis Pregnancy

I recently found out at 12 weeks that I have syphilis. I want to know if anyone else has experienced this complication during pregnancy and what I need to know in order to have a healthy baby and what needs to be done.

you need to ask you doctor this question. ASAP. Good Luck

I would think they could just give you a round of antibiotics and probably early enough for everything to be okay, but I'm not a doc, and you need to ask your doctor to be sure.

Thanks! I have been doing alot of research on the internet about what to expect if the pregnancy goes to full term. I know its 40% death and 60% survival. Plus all the complications and birth defects and so on. I was just treated with two injections of Benzathine Penicillin into my hips and I have follow up blood tests now for two years. The next one being in March. The nurse said if any damage has been done to baby they are not sure but I will have a ultra sound at the end of March begining of April. If anyone has had a baby born with syphilis could you please let me know what complications if any you had with your baby.
