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 appointment in Dubbo, your blood, urine and/or swab samples will be collected by a phlebotomist or clinician who will then send them to our certified, Australian laboratory for analysis. Pathology results will be ready within one to five working days, though this may vary depending on your selected test or screen. You can check the progress of your results at any time by logging into the secure patient area of our website. An expert from Better2Know will also contact you as soon as all your results are ready, unless you would prefer to contact us yourself.
