Syphilis antibodies

Syphilis is one of the major Sexually Transmitted Diseases. It is a bacterial infection that results after having contact with an infected person through intercourse or through the placenta, from a mother to foetus (congenital). Noticeable symptoms start to manifest in three weeks after contracting the infection, and they are very fluctuating in nature. Congenital syphilis brings a lot of complications for the unborn foetus. The test looks for antibodies that are released by the body upon infection. Syphilis is hard to detect because the symptoms could disappear after a few days and the final stage of the disease brings forth a lot of complications pertaining to other organs of the body. 

Have you been feeling any of these symptoms lately?

The following symptoms are associated with a person infected with Syphilis (symptoms take at least three weeks to appear):

1. Sores around reproductive parts and anus

2. White patches and rashes in and around the mouth

3. Swollen glands

4. White or grey warts around reproductive parts

Additional Information

If you are sexually active, it is important to get tested for syphilis.  The early stages of syphilis can be easily treated, but if the infection goes untreated, it can lead to serious health problems, including blindness, paralysis, and even death. That is why it is important to get tested for syphilis and to seek treatment if you are infected. There are many ways to get tested for syphilis, including blood tests, urine tests, and swab tests. If you think you may have been exposed to syphilis, it is important to get tested as soon as possible.


Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. If you test positive for syphilis, there are many treatments available that can cure the infection such as antibiotics. It is important to seek treatment as soon as possible if you test positive for syphilis, because the earlier the infection is treated, the less damage it will cause. Syphilis is a serious infection, but it can be cured with the right treatment. If you think you have been exposed to syphilis, don’t wait to get tested and treated.


One of the best ways to know if you have syphilis is to take a home test. Home testing is private and convenient, and it’s also an accurate way to find out if you have syphilis. If you think you may have been exposed to syphilis, or if you have symptoms of syphilis, take a home test as soon as possible. Home testing is simple and easy, and it only takes a few minutes to complete. It’s the best way to protect yourself and your partner from this serious STI. To take a home test for syphilis, you will need to collect a sample of blood from your finger. The sample will be analysed in a laboratory to detect the presence of Treponema pallidum antibodies. If the test is positive, you will need to see a doctor for treatment. 

Syphilis is a highly transmissible disease that calls for early detection

Syphilis spreads through contact with infected individuals during sexual activities by contact with a syphilitic pore. It can also spread through oral contact and could also be congenital. It is always beneficial to detect the disease in the first or second stages when the symptoms are mild and not life-threatening.
