At A Glance:

Syphilis is an STD caused by bacteria and is transferred by coming into contact with syphilis sores.

NOTE: When detected in its primary stages, syphilis can be easily treated with antibiotics prescribed by a physician.

What You Need To Know:

Like other STD tests, the rapid plasma regain (RPR) test detects antibodies to the syphilis bacteria that the body has produced as a result of infection. Due to the nature of the test, it can sometimes take 4 to 6 weeks to produce an accurate result.


The first symptoms of syphilis are usually a single sore in the genital region or mouth, in the case of oral sex. However, because these sores are painless, sometimes they can go undetected. If you have had sexual contact with a partner who has syphilis or you think you may be infected, syphilis testing through blood sampling can give you the answer.

How Do I Get Tested For Syphilis?

A simple blood test called the Syphilis Rapid Plasma Reagin Test (RPR) will look for the antibodies that fight the infection. It may take up to 6 weeks after exposure to the Syphilis before the antibodies are present. It is also possible to have a false positive reading if you were previously treated for syphilis. In the event that you test positive a another test will be given to confirm the results.
