Best Answer

Either abstain from sex, or ALWAYS use condoms
If your partner doesn't have it, or abstinence. If they do have syph, they need antibiotics to get it treated, but use a condom (which isn't a 100% guarantee)
Condoms are helpful, but are not 100% effective, particularly with diseases like syphilis that spread via skin to skin contact.
