How to Prevent Syphilis


Syphilis lesions can be hidden in the vagina, rectum, or mouth. It may not be obvious that a sex partner has syphilis. The following practices can help prevent syphilis:

  • Abstain from vaginal, anal, and oral sex
  • Have a mutually monogamous sexual relationship with an uninfected partner
  • Use a latex condom during vaginal, anal, and oral sex, especially if you have sexual contact with a partner whose syphilis status you are not certain of
  • Have regular checkups for sexually transmitted diseases
