Confidential Sexual Health Testing in the Gold Coast
Better2Know’s confidential STI testing services are available at private clinics and sample collection centres in the Gold Coast. We are experts in sexual health, and our comprehensive range of tests and screens includes testing for common infections such as HIV, Chlamydia and Syphilis. All the tests and screens we offer in the Gold Coast are designed and reviewed by medical specialists to ensure you get complete peace of mind you regarding your sexual health.
What is the difference between an STD and an STI?
No difference at all. An STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease, and STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection. Most people would rather have an infection than a disease, so STI is the more up to date term.
Your discreet STD test will be conducted by a qualified clinician, or phlebotomist, who will take your samples. Once collected, your blood, urine and/ or swab samples will be sent for analysis at our accredited Australian laboratory. Test results should be ready within one to five working days of your sample’s arrival at the laboratory, though many of our tests and screens have an even shorter turnaround time for results. With Better2Know, results are reported to your secure patient login area, which you can access online at any time. Unless you ask otherwise, you will also be contacted by a member of our sexual health advisory team as soon as all your results are ready.

According to the Kirby Institute, over 18,500 cases of Gonorrhoea were detected in Australia in the year 2015. To put it into context, that figure is more than double the amount of Gonorrhoea infections than was the case in 2006. This represents an alarming rise, and it is not just Gonorrhoea infections that are on the increase. If you are worried about your sexual health or have concerns about Gonorrhoea, or any other STI, Better2Know can help with fast, accurate testing and pathology in Southport, Mermaid Beach, and the rest of the Gold Coast.
