    Q1. does syphilis causes strep throat?
    Q2. whats the minimum window period for syphilis testing and whats the maximum window period ? Some people said after 10 to 20 years after initial exposure syphilis will go undetected?
    Q3. do u need to have fever before getting hiv/std testing ?

    Hi Speedy,

    1. No it does not

    2. I would say the window period for testing is around 1 month and there is no maximum window period. Syphilis infection will always be detected via serology (VD/TPPA) after initial infection.

    3. No. If there is some concern or worry, go for a consult and testing.

    Regards
