Confidential Sexual Health Testing in Lismore
Better2Know is Australia’s leading provider of private sexual health testing services and our comprehensive STI tests and screens are available in the city of Lismore. With a number of private facilities in the city, we can test you for a wide range of sexually transmitted infections and diseases, including HIV. Your appointment with Better2Know is completely confidential. You will be seen by a qualified phlebotomist who will collect your blood, urine, and/or swab samples. They will then be sent to our accredited, Australian laboratory for fast, accurate analysis.
What is the difference between an STI and an STD?
An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. Both terms refer to the same bacteria, virus, and protozoa (mycoplasma in case you were wondering) infections. Infections is the current word doctors use to encourage more testing.
Results should be ready no later than five working days from the sample’s arrival at our laboratory and many results will be ready in 1-2 days. The exact turnaround time for your results depends on the test or screen you select. Results are reported to the secure patient login area of our website, so you can access them online whenever you like. Furthermore, Better2Know will contact you personally once all your results become available. With a network of doctors situated in Lismore and throughout New South Wales, we can also arrange specialist consultations either before your test or following your results. Our discreet Lismore sample collection centres are highlighted on the map below.
STI and HIV Testing in Lismore
According to the Kirby Institute’s Annual Surveillance Report, the number of new HIV diagnoses in Australia has remained worryingly constant over the past five years. Though HIV prevalence may not have risen in that time, HIV infection rates have not shown any sign of improvement either. Testing is still the only way to be certain of your HIV status, so stay safe and get tested, it is always Better2Know.
At Better2Know, we can test you for a wide range of STIs without asking you any uncomfortable questions. As well as HIV, our sexual health centres in Lismore offer discreet and efficient testing for a host of infections. These include, but are not limited to: Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and Trichomonas. You can book these tests individually, or as part of a combination of tests, known as a screen.
