A member asked:

Is a syphilis rapid test using blood from finger and an assay solution conclusive after 4 and half weeks if exposure was a handjob( and only that) from a female escort. also would i be at risk of any other stds/ stis ?

Specializes in Infectious Disease

Such contact is no risk for syphilis or any other STD/STI, including syphilis. If infected somehow (from a different kind of exposure), the rapid tests probably detect 80-90% of infections at 4 weeks.
