Any sexually active person can get syphilis through unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Have an honest and open talk with your health care provider and ask whether you should be tested for syphilis or other STIs.
You should get tested regularly for syphilis if you are:
- are pregnant
- sexually active men who have sex with men (MSM);
- living with HIV and are sexually active;
- taking PrEP for HIV prevention.
