What is the difference between an STI and an STD?
An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. They can be used interchangeably to refer to any of the infections that we test you for. Most people prefer to have an infection than a disease so STI is the more modern term.
Your blood, swab and/ or urine samples will be collected quickly and efficiently at your appointment in Maitland. Your samples will then be sent for analysis at our fully accredited Australian laboratory. Results should be ready no later than five working days from the receipt of your sample by the lab, depending on your selected tests or screen.

STI and HIV Testing in Maitland
We offer an array of confidential STI tests and screens throughout the city of Maitland. These are validated by our panel of medical experts to ensure you get the peace of mind you need regarding your sexual health. With Better2Know you can choose an individual STI test, or combination of tests, to best suit your personal requirements. At our private clinics and collection centres in Maitland, we can test you for Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Herpes and many other sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.
According to the latest statistics, around 15% of new HIV diagnoses in New South Wales are associated with heterosexual contact, and this group continues to be diagnosed late, meaning treatments start later, giving the HIV virus the opporutnity to do more damage to the immune system. Early detection and intervention are crucial in combatting the HIV virus and testing is the only way to be certain of your HIV status. If you are worried about HIV, or have concerns about any other sexually transmitted infection, stay safe and get tested – it is always Better2Know.
