What is the difference between an STD and an STI?
An STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease, and STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection. Would yo rather have an Infection or Disease? Most people would say neither, but then say Infection if they had to choose. So STI is being used more widely to encourage testing.
At your scheduled appointment in Darwin, you will be seen by a qualified phlebotomist. They will collect the samples that are appropriate for your selected test or screen. The samples will then sent to our central, fully accredited laboratory for swift and efficient analysis. Your test results will be ready within one to five working days from when the sample is received in the lab, depending on your chosen test. With Better2Know, you can access your results online by logging into the secure patient area of our website. We will also contact you once all your results become available.
