What is Syphilis?

Syphilis is a bacterial infection that, if left undiagnosed and untreated, can potentially result in serious health issues. It is mainly transferred by direct contact with a Syphilis chancre (a sore that presents itself on the infected area). This is often through unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex.

Symptoms of Syphilis are not always evident. However, when present, symptoms can include:

  • An appearance of a chancre (a sore or ulcer), usually externally on the penis, vagina or anus. It can appear in other places such as the mouth.
  • A non-itching rash that can be found on the palms of the hands or the bottoms of the feet.
  • Skin growths similar to genital warts.
  • White patches in the mouth.
  • Fever, swollen glands, sore throat, headaches and muscle aches.

If left untreated, Syphilis may eventually cause damage to internal organs including the brain, nerves, eyes, heart, blood vessels, liver, bones and joints. For pregnant women, having Syphilis can result in miscarriages, premature births and stillbirths. The child can also have problems with development, a risk of deformities, or seizures.

Syphilis Testing with Better2Know

Better2Know provides a variety of comprehensive screens that include Syphilis, to give you peace of mind when it comes to your sexual health. The screens usually require a blood and urine sample. Alternatively, an individual test for Syphilis can be arranged. Results from your test or screen will be ready within 3-5 working days once our laboratory has received your samples.

You will be given access to your secure patient login area, where you can check the progress of your results at any time once they are available. One of Better2Know’s sexual health advisors will also contact you if requested when all your results are ready.

Our expert advisors will provide support and guidance in relation to your next steps should you need it. For example, if you test positive, our sexual health advisory team can schedule a doctor’s consultation or refer you to a specialist service after you get your results.
