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.

DocTap seek to provide the most convenient, fastest, effective and best value private STI testing service in London. With 12 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 12 London STD clinics. To have a syphilis test or to see a GP for any other reason book an appointment now.
