Can I still get an STD?

My new girlfriend told me she got diagnosed with syphilis last year but was treated with 2 antibiotics with resolution of her signs and symptoms. My question is, can she still give it to me even after being treated for it?

If she's been adequate treated, she no longer has this STD and thus cannot pass it on to you.

Syphilis is a curable STD with appropriate therapy.

Thanks for the info, just was wondering if anyone has had any personal experience with this as well.
