People who have sex with multiple partners or have unprotected sex are at an increased risk of contracting syphilis. The Treponema pallidum bacterium enters the body through abrasions or cuts in the mucous membrane or skin during sexual intercourse with an infected person’s sore. Syphilis is contagious during the primary and secondary stages; it may also spread in the early latent period through direct unprotected contact.
Syphilis left untreated can damage the human body by increasing the risk of HIV infection. Moreover, in women, syphilis may cause complications during pregnancy. Early diagnosis can help prevent future damage.
