Syphilis Testing

How do I get tested for syphilis?

The only way to know for sure if you have syphilis is to get tested. Our doctors recommend the RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) with Reflex to Quantitative RPR blood test. This Syphilis Test is a simple blood test that looks for antibodies the body creates to combat syphilis. If test results return positive, a confirmatory TP (Treponema pallidum) test will be done to confirm the initial diagnosis. Our doctors recommend testing for anyone with symptoms of a primary or secondary syphilis infection. Pregnant women in particular should get tested during pregnancy and at delivery, because long-term untreated syphilis infections can lead to death for developing infants. A low level of antibodies may remain in the blood for months or even years after syphilis has been successfully treated.

You can order your Syphilis Test online, over the phone at 1-800-456-2323 or through our convenient live chat feature. Then simply and bring the test code to a nearby testing center to give a small blood sample. There will be no uncomfortable swabbing and you will not be asked to undress. You will be done with your visit within a few minutes. Our doctors advise that you get tested for syphilis 3-6 weeks post-exposure. Additionally, our doctors recommend getting tested again 3 months after being tested and treated for a syphilis infection to be sure that the bacteria is completely gone from your system.

Regular syphilis testing is best

Make syphilis testing, HIV and other STD testing part of your routine health screening. Testing for syphilis and other STDs frequently is important if you are sexually active, have multiple sexual partners, and/or have never been tested.

How to read syphilis test result from STDcheck.com

A negative test result indicates that syphilis was not found in your system. If your test comes back positive, then an active syphilis infection is present. If detected early, antibiotics can easily treat and cure a syphilis infection. You and your partner should abstain from sexual activity until your syphilis sores have completely healed and treatment has been completed.
