Doctor insights on:
Incubation Period Of Syphilis
Tricky syphilis: Syphilis can appear one week to THREE months after an exposure. Part of that has to do with how many bacteria came across at the time of infection. Obviously if there were alot of those germs, the infection would get started earlier than otherwise. Serological or blood testing should parallel those symptoms- it gets more complicated though when exposures were in the past. An ID doc can help. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is syphilis related to gullain barre syndrome? What is the incubation period of syphilis on average?
Syphilis: No. Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease cause by a bacteria. The neurological symptoms of syphilis take 10-20 years to develop. Guillain-Barré syndrome is an autoimmune disease with rapid ascending weakness in the legs and arms that can cause loss of respiratory function. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis will distinguish between the two diseases. Start using condoms to avoid syphilis. Read more
Regarding the window period, if you may have been exposed to syphilis less than 3 months ago (window period) and get tested for syphilis, there is a risk of a false negative.
There are many types of syphilis tests, including a rapid HIV-syphilis test and a rapid test for syphilis, both for use at the point of care. Most tests for syphilis are looking for antibodies. Read more
How many types of tests there are for syphilis and what are the window period for each one of them?
Syphilis tests: There are a number of different tests for syphilis. Some are just rapid screens that don't actually test for the germ but have been shown to be highly accurate. These are the RPR & VDRL tests. Then, there are tests for the antibody, which is the signature that the body has "seen" the organism. Those are FTA tests. Then there is microscopy to actually look for the germ. Newer tests have come out 2. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I asked earlier about window period for syphilis. I said I was tested 2 months after last contact, but it was actually 2.5 months. It was negative.?
When I get turned on it kinda of hurts. What could this be? When I get turned on it hurts. It kind of feels like a period cramp. I'm not sure what this could be because I have been tested for hiv, clamedia, syphilis, gonorrhea and a couple other std's and
Orgasm both helps relieve the pain of menstrual cramps, but can also induce cramping (which lasts a short time). Clitoral stimulation may be inducing cramps in you if it is close to your period, but usually the effect is to make the cramps less painful. I would recommend taking Ibuprofen 600 mg about an hour before you plan to be intimate to help lessen cramping, unless you have been told by a doctor not to take Ibuprofen (issues with easy bleeding/bruising, gastric ulcer).

This is probably the wrong question. There is no 'incubation' period. If you get infected with HIV you are infected with HIV and must be treated to prevent the immune destruction that leads to aids.
Now, from exposure to full on infection is usually a fourteen to twenty-one day process. The new HIV viral tests can be 100% accurate at day 21 or later. Read more

Yes: Symptoms of active TB in the lungs begin gradually and develop over a period of weeks or months. You may have one or two mild symptoms and not even know that you have the disease. Other fungal infections like coccidiodomycosis if live in southwest can be similar. Fungal infections are slower than bacterial unless immune compromised. Read more
What is the Incubation Period for contracting MRSA and is it a very important factor in proving liability?
MRSA: MRSA is everywhere now. May be difficult to prove that it was hospital acquired. Staph is all over our skin. So we do not talk about incubation periods like we do with other infections. When infection occurs. It occurs. Read more
