About

Overview

Thanks to modern medicine, syphilis is no longer the deadly, ruinous, and terrifying scourge that it once was. Yet it is still an extremely serious sexual health concern. It is imperative that people who have contracted syphilis get treatment before it is spread to others and reaches late stages. This accessible guide explains what syphilis is, how it is contracted and spread, how it develops in the body, and how it is treated. It walks readers through getting a STD test, talking to a sexual partner, and rising above any feelings of fear or shame. An invaluable teen health resource!
