A breakdown of your syphilis test and actionable follow up steps.
Treponema pallidum is a bacteria that causes syphilis. Syphilis is transmitted via sexual contact from an infected individual to another. Undiagnosed and untreated cases can lead to damage of the brain, eyes, nerves, blood vessels, heart, live, joints, and bones.

Many STDs show no symptoms.
Regularly monitoring your sexual health, especially if you are sexually active, can help prevent long term consequences and avoid passing an infection to a partner.
There are different ways to measure your health if infected with syphilis. Here's why they matter for you:
The syphilis antibody is an IgG antibody that is detected in the blood stream if one is infected with the bacteria.
The majority of syphilis infections are asymptomatic. If symptoms do occur, they are likely to occur within two weeks of exposure. Some symptoms may include: pain upon urination, pain during sexual intercourse, rash or itching (anus or genitals), change in the color or abnormal smelling discharge, or painful erections.
Monitoring your sexual history is crucial for your overall health.
