Would you like to want to find out if I have a venereal disease without anyone knowing. The self-test kit is a test kit that allows you to check the possibility of infection at home. When it turns out that there is no risk of infection, it is safe for the time being. If the possibility of infection is high, you can consult a urologist.

At-home tests can provide a convenient method for knowing your STD status.

You can easily check the possibility of infection yourself

This test kit is a rapid test kit (immunoctomato method) for the qualitative detection of HIV1/2 antibodies and syphilis antibodies in human serum, plasma, or whole blood. A lancet (a device used to collect blood from the fingertip. There is a stinging pain) is used to collect blood, and a test kit is used to confirm the possibility of infection within 15 minutes.

When can I be checked for HIV for syphilis?

It takes about 6 weeks for syphilis to produce the necessary antibodies in the body, and about 8 weeks for HIV. I am worried that it will take some time until the conditions for knowing the result of infection are in place, but please wait until the necessary information is obtained before conducting the test. (If you have had syphilis in the past, the antibodies will remain in your body even after the treatment is over, so you may get the result of “positive”.)

Drastic increase in syphilis patients in Japan

About 20 years ago in Japan, the number of patients was low at less than 1,000 per year, and it was thought to be a disease of the past. However, in 2013, it exceeded 1,200 and started to increase, followed by 2,000 in 2015, 4,000 in 2016, and 12,966 in 2022, increasing at a rapid pace. A characteristic of the increase in recent years is that the number of young female patients in their 20s is increasing significantly, even though there is no age bias in male infections. Syphilis infection in women requires special attention as it can affect the fetus. About syphilis →in preparation

Importance of early detection of HIV

Although the number of people infected with HIV (including AIDS and AIDS) exceeded 1,000 in 2013, it has been declining, but still hovering around 800 per year. The initial image of the disease, which was first discovered in the 1980s, is dead, but once it develops (AIDS symptoms) it becomes difficult to treat. If treatment is started before the onset of symptoms and continued, it is possible to lead a life similar to that of a healthy person. Therefore, early detection and early treatment are very important. About HIV → in preparation

Obligation to report syphilis and HIV If syphilis or HIV (including AIDS) is confirmed to be infected at a medical institution, the doctor is obliged to report it to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare within 7 days based on the Infectious Disease Law.

Early diagnosis and early treatment are important for sexually transmitted diseases

Symptoms of syphilis can vary from year to year depending on how long you have been infected. It used to be an incurable disease, but now it can be completely cured with early treatment such as antibiotics. However, it is highly contagious, and if left untreated, the disease will surely progress. If HIV can be detected at an early stage and appropriate treatment can be continued, it is possible to reach the end of life with almost no symptoms. However, in some cases, it may be discovered that the person was an HIV carrier only after developing AIDS because they missed the opportunity to be tested.
