What is the difference between an STD and an STI?
An STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease, and STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection. They mean the same sexually transmitted bugs. STI is the newer term to encourage people to get any suspectd STI treated.
As soon as your results become available, we will post them securely to your specific patient login area, so you can access them easily online. If specified, a member of Better2Know’s sexual health advisory team will also contact you directly when all your results are ready.
