    This sounds as though you are asymtomatic. This means you harbour the disease (or virus etc.)in your system but you have no signs or symptoms of the disease.

    You might want to mention this to your wife.
    sounds complicated to me. take your report to the doctor. hopefully he can explain in easier terms.
    The good news is that syphilis is bacterial which means there is a cure unlike viral diseases. See you doctor and in the mean time check out this website...
