If you are unsure about testing, or anything else related to your sexual health, Better2Know can arrange private consultations either before your test, or following reporting of your results. We provide fast and accurate testing for a wide range of STIs, including HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.
What is the difference between an STD and an STI?
Would you rather have an infection or a disease? Most people say infection. An STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease, and STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection. The two terms cover the same infections and diseases, STI is the newer acronym.
At your private appointment in Hobart, you will be seen by a discreet qualified phlebotomist who will take your blood, urine and/or swab samples. Once collected, samples are sent to our fully accredited laboratory where they will be analysed quickly and efficiently. Depending on the test or screen you select, your results could be ready as early as one working day from the receipt of your sample by the lab. Results are reported securely to the patient area of our website. You can access them online at any time. If specified and once all your results are available, you will also be contacted by a member of Better2Know’s sexual health advisory team who will discuss your results with you.
