Syphilis is a bacterial infection that's usually caught by having sex with someone who's infected.
Although the prevalence has decreased dramatically with the availability of penicillin, the rates of infection has increased since the turn of the millennium in many countries.
Syphilis is caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. It is transmitted primarily by sexual contact or during pregnancy from a mother to her fetus.
The bacteria is able to pass through intact mucous membranes and compromised skin. It is therefore transmissible by kissing near a lesion, as well as oral, vaginal, and anal sex.
It is not generally possible to contract syphilis through toilet seats, daily activities, hot tubs, or sharing eating utensils or clothing. This is mainly because the bacteria die very quickly outside of the body.
You ca reduce the risk of catching syphilis by:
Syphilis in newborn children can be prevented by screening mothers during early pregnancy and treating those who are infected.
The symptoms of syphilis aren't always obvious and may eventually disappear, but you'll usually remain infected unless you get treated. Symptoms can include:
DocTap can provide same day syphilis tests (£60) or full sexual health screens (£120), both available with same day results. Your doctor will be able to advise you on the most appropriate test and then take a blood sample which will be tested in our partner laboratory in Harley Street.
Syphilis is usually treated with either:
An injection of antibiotics – most people will only need one dose, although three injections given at weekly intervals may be recommended if you've had syphilis for a long time.
A course of antibiotics tablets if you can't have the injection.
You should avoid any kind of sexual activity or close sexual contact with another person until at least two weeks after your treatment finishes.

I had not been feeling well for a week or so with a cold. I wanted to see a doctor quickly to see if it was more than a cold. i was able to book an appointment quickly, on my phone. I was able to book an appointment for 30 minutes from the time of booking which was what i needed. The offices were a 10 minute walk from my office which was very convenient. The doctor that i saw was very thorough and explained everything to me. I really liked her manner. i will definitely be back when i need a GP again!! So happy that I found DocTap!Thursday, May 16, 2019
The doctor is an amazing person - not only as a doctor but also simply human like me and you. She can put herself in the shoe of others. She understands the situation and happy to help. Coming here is like dealing with a trusted family. Would not consider changing doctors.Thursday, May 16, 2019

I was hit with a flare up of a horrible chest infection and double eye infection the day before starting the Three Peaks Challenge (to climb the 3 highest mountains in Britain in 24 hours). Dr. Stevenson listened to my full history with compassion, and was able to patch me up so that I could complete the challenge feeling strong. So grateful for this level of care. Highly recommend!Monday, May 13, 2019
The entire process is perfect but am yet to receive report detailing out the Doctor observations and referral she talked about. Thank youSaturday, May 11, 2019
DocTap seek to provide the most convenient, fastest, effective and best value private STI testing service in London. With 11 STD clinics across London and same day appointments available 7 days a week, it has never been easier to book a syphilis test. We are proud to partner with The Doctors Laboratory (TDL) which has a worldwide reputation for excellence.
Unlike many walk in STI clinics, you will see a UK accredited GP who will be able to offer their expert option on what test is most appropriate for you. Your results will also be accompanied by a written analysis of what they mean and what your doctor advises you to do next. Should additional treatment be required, or if you simply wish to discuss the results in more detail, then you can book a 15 minute follow up consultation for only £25. This can either be at any DocTap clinic or over the phone. When booking your follow up consultation you can request to see you original doctor if you wish (subject to their availability).
Should you require a full consulation before deciding to have a syphilis test then there may be insufficient time to also take a blood sample in the appointment. In that case you can choose to either go to our walk in laboratory by Oxford Street (£15 phlebotomy fee applies) or to make a second appointment for the doctor to take the bloods.Book a Syphilis Test today
Our doctors are available now and can perform a full range of STI tests from our 11 London STD clinics. To have a syphilis test or to see a GP for any other reason book an appointment now.
