Reduce your risk

To reduce the risk of syphilis we suggest that men who have sex with men:

• Maintain safe sexual practices (condoms with anal sex)

• Remember that syphilis is commonly spread via oral sex

• Seek early advice if you notice oral, genital or anal sores, or rash on body, hands or feet

• Have regular STI testing, including a syphilis blood test, at least every 12 months

• Seek early advice if you notice oral, genital or anal sores, and/or if you have a rash on your body, hands or feet

Syphilis infections continue to rise. Could I have syphilis? Get tested early.
