A member asked:

Is a negative result using an at home syphilis antibody rapid test using the colloidal gold method ( comes with test pad and assay solution and uses blood from finger) conclusive after 6 weeks?

Probably yes, but little research has been done on this particular test. If syphilis is seriously suspected, it might be best to check again 3 months after exposure.

Best to have one repeated in about 8-10 weeks
