What kind of syphilis test do you use?
The Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) with Reflex to Quantitative RPR and TP-PA (LabCorp) or FTA-ABS (Quest) Confirmation is the most commonly used syphilis test in the United States. It looks for antibodies that the body produces to fight a syphilis infection. While it's likely that antibodies are detectable as early as 3 weeks after being exposed, we recommend a repeat test at 6 to 12 weeks to be certain that an earlier test didn't miss a possible syphilis infection.
What kind of sample does the syphilis test require?
The syphilis test is a blood test. At the lab, the lab tech will draw a blood sample.
How do I prepare for the syphilis test?
There is no special preparation required for the syphilis test.
What will my syphilis results tell me?
A normal syphilis test result means that there is no evidence of the infection. An abnormal test result indicates the syphilis bacteria is present. A confirmatory test is run to confirm the result since an RPR result can occasionally be abnormal in the absence of syphilis. After treatment, it's important to do follow up monitoring and to practice safe sex to avoid reinfection.
Is there a cure for syphilis?
Yes, syphilis can be cured with treatment, especially when caught early. Syphilis is treated with an injection of antibiotics. If your test result is abnormal, our doctors will connect you with a local doctor for additional testing and treatment, as well as follow-up monitoring to confirm you are cured.
