Syphilis (Treponoma) IgG/IgM Blood Tests

The Syphilis IgG/IgM test is a blood test that helps detect the presence of antibodies in your body that are associated with syphilis, a sexually transmitted infection (STI). This test is used to determine if you have been exposed to the bacteria that causes syphilis.

Syphilis is a serious infection that can be transmitted through sexual contact or from an infected mother to her baby during pregnancy. It can cause various symptoms, such as sores, rashes, and flu-like symptoms, but sometimes it may not show any symptoms at all.

The Syphilis IgG/IgM test works by checking for two types of antibodies: IgG and IgM. IgG antibodies are produced by your body after a previous or ongoing syphilis infection, while IgM antibodies are produced during an active or recent infection.

Getting tested for syphilis is important because early detection and treatment can prevent serious complications.

If the test results are positive, it means that you have been exposed to syphilis and further medical evaluation and treatment are necessary. If the test results are negative, it indicates that you have not been infected with syphilis or that it is too early for the antibodies to be detected.
