My partner just tested positive for syphillis


If your partner tested positive for syphilis you would need to get a test for syphilis and maybe the treatment. Needing the treatment really depends on what stage of syphilis they have and when you last had sex with them.

It would be easier if you went to the same place where your partner was tested as they would know if you just need to be tested or need the syphilis treatment as well. If you are unable to go there feel free to send us a private message about your situation and we can assist you. You can also call the Provincial STI clinic on 604-707-5600 and ask to speak with a nurse as well.

Also have a look at our Syphilis web page for additional information.

Let us know if you have any more questions or concerns.
