I want to do a syphilis test from home

Our syphilis test beats all other tests
Our rapid test is more sensitive than any other test. We demonstrated this in our own study that you can read here.
However, It doesn’t work in people who have had syphilis in the past, but we have an alternative test that is just as good.
Our doctors have a wealth of experience in diagnosing syphilis. Maybe you should book a phone consultation with them first if you have any doubts.
We can do syphilis tests either here in Madrid or in your local blood collection centre:

Can I do this test from home?
Unfortunately we can’t do this test from home. This test requires special collection and transport organized in a laboratory.

Can I do this test without going to Madrid?
Yes, we can organize for your blood to be taken in a clinic in your region (subject to availability). They will send us your blood for testing at Open House and then we will get the result back to you by email within 48h of receiving your sample.
We can arrange a phone consultation with our specialist medical team first if you need one.

Confused by what you’ve read? Three suggestions

How can we help you?


You can book a phone consultation with our doctors or come to Madrid to see them

Please trust our clinical judgement. Open House has done nearly 60.000 STI tests.

Caution! It is important to read about the Window Period before doing tests UNLESS YOU HAVE WORRYING SYMPTOMS

I want to learn more about primary, secondary & latent syphilis and symptoms:


  • (1) Primary syphilis: if you can’t see it, you don’t know you have it
  • (2) Secondary syphilis: skin rashes and unwellness
  • (3) Latent syphilis: asymptomatic & common disease:
(1) Primary syphilis: if you can’t see it, you don’t know you have it

A visible chancre:
The typical presentation of primary syphilis is an ulcer in the genital area or in the mouth some weeks after oral, vaginal or anal sex. The surprising thing about these chancres is that they do not hurt despite being quite deep. They often have raised edges and are red.

A hidden chancre:
If the infection has occurred in the throat, inside the vagina or inside the anus, you will not know it is there because it doesn’t hurt.

Syphilis in oral sex:
More than 65% of cases we see in Open House have been caught in just oral sex.

Considerably contagious:
The risk of catching syphilis in oral, vaginal or anal sex with someone infected is about 40%.
Not all ulcers we see are due to syphilis. They may be be herpes, chancroid or other causes.

(2) Secondary syphilis: skin rashes and unwellness

Secondary +/- primary:
Secondary syphilis is the next phase after a chancre, occurring some weeks later. Half of all patients with secondary syphilis in Open House do not remember having had a chancre.

Rash +/- other symptoms:
As in primary syphilis, the skin rashes of secondary syphilis are not painful or itchy. The typical rash can be seen in this photo, there are no raised bumps and is present all over the entire body.
There may be deep lesions on the hands or feet, swollen glands, hair loss, fever at nighttime, tiredness, but these symptoms are less common.
Secondary syphilis can often manifest itself as other strange skin changes such as false warts, circles on genital skin, or mouth and anal ulcers. Additionally a patient can be between primary and secondary syphilis (called latent syphilis). Please read on for more information.

(3) Latent syphilis: asymptomatic & common disease:

Defined by the absence of symptoms:
Latent syphilis is the phase between primary and secondary syphilis. It has not symptoms and can last weeks, months or even years. In this stage, the patient feels perfectly well.

Lack of symptoms is a common situation:
Some 25% of all syphilis we see in Open House is in this stage. Syphilis cases have increased in Europe by some 500% in the last 20 years.
