Over recent weeks the number of cases of the STD called Syphilis has exploded. This disease is sexually transmitted, by having oral, vaginal or anal sex without a condom. You don’t have to have ‘full sex’ to catch this infection. It can be passed on by sexually active men and women of any age and sexual orientation, gay, straight or bi. We have noticed a large rise in the number of homosexual men, bisexual men and young heterosexual people in Wales infected with Syphilis.
When you catch syphilis you may have no symptoms or changes to your body that you notice.
Sometimes you may find a spot, mark or ulcer on your genitals. You may feel unwell or have a rash. Sometimes you may get swollen glands. With the recent infections in Wales, many patients had no symptoms at all.
It is easy to test for syphilis. All that is needed is a small blood sample. This is sent off for specialist tests. Our private tests are carried out in London and results return in 24 hours.
Once found, this infection can be treated quickly and effectively. It is important that syphilis infections are treated, as it can become a very, very serious disease. It can cause damage to most organs of the body and destroy skin, cartiledge and bone.
There has been a link noticed between certain website use and these syphilis infections.
If you have used fabguys.com, fabswingers.com or Grindr we recommend you get tested for this infection as soon as possible.
Our private Syphilis test and a Consultation with a doctor costs £89.
