Syphilis window period

Hello, Id like to know if syphilis has a window period that has to be waited before testing like HIV for example. Or can it be tested right away after possibel exposure.

Thank you

6 weeks from possible exposure will give you a good test result.

Its been 2 weeks since I got a 1 minute aprox. blowjob from a CSW. A week later i noticed the tiniest little spot (inwards like a little cut about 1 mm) that dissapeared the next day. I have had that before from candida fungi, so it was familiar to me. (I had cream)

My question is now, 2 weeks later what is the likelyhood of syphilis? should I worry at all about this? wjhat happens if I test now?

Thank you

Syphilis in developed countries is rare and even rarer in women. On average a syphilis sore shows at 21 days and it does not go away the next day. Google a picture of a syphilis sore.

So no need to test for anything then, after this exposure?
