As Seen On ABC's Shark Tank
Who should take this test?
It is estimated that just over 85,000 new cases of Syphilis are reported to the CDC each year and the total number of infected individuals has been increasing over the past few years. Syphilis is a bacterial infection that is spread from sexual contact (including vaginal, anal, and oral sex) with someone who is infected. This test will not be able to tell you the specific site of infection, but will detect the infection if present.
Pregnant women infected with Syphilis can also spread Syphilis to their unborn children in pregnancy. Men who have sex with men comprise the largest group of infected individuals, totaling just over 80% of all reported cases to the CDC in 2016. Individuals who should be tested for Syphilis include any individual who had sexual contact with a person known to be infected with Syphilis, any man who is actively having sex with another man, all pregnant women, sexually active individuals living with HIV, and anyone who is taking PrEP for HIV prevention.

What guidance will I get with my results?
The Syphilis test checks whether or not you test positive for Syphilis. In the event that your test results are abnormal, a board-certified physician in your state will contact you at no additional cost to discuss your particular case and prescribe medication where applicable. We take customer privacy very seriously and only you will have access to this information. As is the case with all STD testing - whether through EverlyWell or your doctor – we may be required by law to report positive test results to certain state health departments. This is only done to track infection prevalence. If you test positive for Syphilis, EverlyWell’s physician network will report this data to your state health board for tracking. In rare cases you may not receive a definitive result because of early infection or inadequate sampling and repeat testing is suggested. Don’t take a chance on your sexual health. Know where you stand with our at-home Syphilis test.
