A result of “Not Detected” is reported when there is no evidence of the infection. If testing is performed too early (or before the “window period”), a result may be falsely reported as “Not Detected.” To ensure accurate results, it is recommended that testing (or repeat testing) occur after the window period, which is approximately three months after potential exposure to the STD due to the incubation period of the infection.
A result of “Detected” is used when there is evidence of the infection. A follow-up test with your physician is required to confirm all positive results.
A positive result for syphilis may not indicate a current infection, and may be reported if a previous infection (even with treatment) has occurred. In rare cases you may receive a result of “Indeterminate” for a syphilis test. This may be due to testing for the infection too early after potential exposure. It is recommended that a repeat test be taken or a different type of test be performed through your physician’s office.
