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.
Better2Know’s STI testing facilities in Hervey Bay operate at the highest international standards of quality. Our experienced staff are friendly and discreet and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. At your appointment in Hervey Bay, a qualified phlebotomist will take your blood, swab and/or urine samples.

Whilst new HIV cases have decreased in Queensland recently, infections such as Syphilis and Gonorrhoea have experienced a spike in diagnoses. It is important, therefore, to remain vigilant with regards to your sexual health.
