I donated blood and just received a letter stating that they found traces of treponema pallidum antibodies (syphilis) in my blood... how serious is this. Could I have contracted this through oral sex? Where to from here!!

I think that you should consult your doctor for treatment of syphilis. This is a very nasty disease. Refer to the following link for detailed information about syphilis and the treatment thereof: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syphilis
