  • Syphilis

  • Syphilis is an STD that is causing many new infections, especially among men who have sex with other men. Unlike HIV, syphilis can be easily transmitted through unprotected oral sex.

    If untreated, syphilis can lead to severe neurovascular symptoms and/or death. A simple blood test can detect syphilis, which can be cured with penicillin. Yearly testing is recommended. 

    More frequent testing is advised for those with multiple sexual partners.
