Syphilis is caused by the treponema pallidum bacteria and is spread through sexual contact with an infected person. It is most contagious in the early stage of infection.

Who is this blood test for

This test is for individuals who believe that they may have come into contact with syphilis through having unprotected sex with an infected person, or who is showing symptoms consitent with the infection.

There are 3 stages of the infection: a sore on the genitals or the mouth which may last between 3 to 6 weeks before clearing up, a skin rash and sore throat which may last a few weeks followed by a latent stage with no real symptoms until it reaches the third and most dangerous stage when serious damage to the body can occur depending which part of the body is affected.
