Syphilis
« on: October 14, 2008, 05:47:48 PM »
Hi all,

I had this query that, HIV, HCV, HbsAg, Hepatitis A cannot be detected if its in the window period. I wanted to ask what about syphilis?

Looking forward for a reply.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.

Incubation Period

    10 days to 3 months, averaging about 3 weeks.
...FYI... Sometimes the incubation period can delay the test's sensitivity, so tests are usually repeated after 6 weeks when the initial tests are negative and the health care provider suspects you have syphilis.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.
