Syphilis

Syphilis

 

Syphilis is a bacterial infection that can be spread through sexual contact, including oral sex and is treated with antibiotics. Left untreated it can, over time, have potentially serious health implications.

 

Testing

A syphilis test is offered to everybody having a routine sexual health screen. Tests for syphilis may take a while to become positive following exposure. Therefore we may recommend a repeat test based upon your sexual history and risk assessment.
