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.
At your confidential appointment in Mandurah, you will be seen by a qualified phlebotomist who will explain your test and take your samples swiftly and discreetly. Once your samples have been collected, they will then be sent to our central, Australian laboratory for testing and analysis. Results typically take between one and five working days following your sample’s arrival at our laboratory. Certain tests and screens will return your results as early as one working day from receipt of your sample. You can access your results online by logging into the secure patient area of our website. Furthermore, once they are all ready, an expert from Better2Know will contact you personally to discuss your results.
