To ensure syphilis prevention, we must understand how it is transmitted. Syphilis spreads through direct contact with a syphilis sore, usually through sexual activity. Indirect contact does not transmit the disease. Following this, sharing eating utensils, using the same toilet, or coming in contact with any of the things of a person with syphilis will not transmit the disease.
How does syphilis spread?
Syphilis spreads primarily through unprotected sexual contact. This includes anal, oral, and vaginal sex. The risk of this increases when people do not use safe sexual practices. This includes having several sexual partners.
