Syphilis is a bacterial infection that is easily shared between partners. A syphilis infection usually starts out as a sore or sores at the spot you received it but progresses through different stages affecting different areas throughout your body. Syphilis is simple to treat but can be serious if left untreated.
Syphilis usually starts out as a red sore or sores at the spot where it entered your skin. It is tricky though because it changes the longer you have it through a few different stages. It may look like a sore, a rash on your body or hands, swollen lymph nodes or a fever. It may also appear to heal on its own. Syphilis can stay in your body for many years and causes serious damage if left untreated.
Syphilis is shared when the parts of your body you use for sex, or the skin surrounding those areas, come in skin to skin contact with a syphilis sore. Since Syphilis sores can occur in hard to inspect places (like inside your butthole or vagina) and they are generally painless, you or your partner may not even notice it is there. Also, since the sores can occur around your sexy areas (mouth, butthole, vagina, penis) a condom or dental dam might not cover an unnoticed sore.

Given that all STIs have different incubation periods, the time between infection and first exhibiting symptoms (if symptoms appear at all), it is important to get tested regularly as a sexual active person. We recommend being tested every 1-3 months which is why we offer subscription plans to make it as easy as possible to manage your health.
