Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

A VDRL test is a blood test that measures the level of antibodies in your blood. Antibodies are proteins that your body produces in response to an infection.

The VDRL test is used to diagnose syphilis, a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. Syphilis can cause serious health problems if it is not treated. The VDRL test is usually done as part of a routine STI screening.

A VDRL test is used to screen for syphilis, a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. The test can detect both early and late stages of syphilis.

Doctors recommend that all adults with risk factors for STIs be screened for syphilis with a VDRL or another similar test at least once a year.

The results are either Positive or Negative. A negative test result is the usual result of the VDRL test.

There are a few things you can do to lower your VDRL level:

1. Get on a regular schedule of penicillin injections. These will help to keep the level of bacteria in your body low and prevent new infections from forming.

2. Avoid contact with people who have active infections. This includes avoiding sexual contact with anyone with an STD, and not sharing needles or other personal items with someone with active disease.

3. Practice good hygiene. This means showering regularly, washing your hands often, and avoiding touching your face or mucous membranes (such as your eyes, nose, or mouth) with unclean hands.

4. Get vaccinated against common infections. This includes vaccinations for hepatitis B and C, as well as the flu vaccine.

5. Eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. This will help to boost your immune system and keep your overall health in good condition.

Yes, the VDRL test is safe. There is no risk of contracting any diseases from the test, and it is not painful.

Before having a VDRL test, it is important to tell your doctor if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant. This is because the VDRL test can give false-positive results in pregnant women. If you are pregnant and have a positive VDRL test, your doctor will likely order another test, called the fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption (FTA-ABS) test, to confirm the diagnosis.

Fasting is not required for the VDRL test.

Yes, home sample collection is available for the VDRL test. One can opt for home collection while booking a test through Max Lab.
