The symptoms of syphilis first started with a painless chancre. Then it followed up to swelling in the nodes around the pelvic region. There was one occurrence of a non-itchy painless rash that lasted two days.

When I started having spots between periods, I went to the doctor. She did blood work and found that I have syphilis.
