“You can get the infection if you come into contact with an ulcer on their penis, vagina, bottom (anus), or inside their mouth,” the NHS explains.
It’s also possible for syphilis to be passed on:
- To an unborn baby during pregnancy
- By injecting drugs with a needle that’s been used by an infected person
- During a blood or organ transplant (this is rare).
If you believe you have syphilis it is best to attend a sexual health clinic to get tested.
