Cecille, once you have been cure (taken the injection), you will stay cured. The problem with Syphilis is that the sore (chancre) associated with it will clear up by itself whether you take treatment or not. You will then think that you are cured but it will come back later again.
The tests will always show that you had the infection, but it does distinguish between old and new infections. Good luck.
