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 appointment, a qualified clinician or phlebotomist will collect your samples. Your samples will be sent securely for analysis to our accredited laboratory in Australia. Your results will be available within one to five working days, depending on the STIs you choose to test for. You can track the progress of your results online in your patient log-in area which you can access at any time. A member of our dedicated Patient Services team will also contact you when all your results are ready, unless you instruct us otherwise.

In Australia, the prevalence of many STIs has risen over the past two decades with Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, and Syphilis increasing significantly. This sparked the Stop the rise of STIs campaign to encourage regular sexual health testing in Queensland, particularly amongst younger people. However, anyone who is sexually active is at risk of catching an infection. Better2Know’s STI tests and screens are suitable for younger and older people alike.
