Sexual Health Testing in Melbourne
At Better2Know, we provide private STI testing services at sexual health clinics and phlebotomy points across Melbourne. We offer a comprehensive range of tests and screens throughout Melbourne, with same or next day appointment availability six days a week, including Saturdays. Our private service includes testing for Australia’s most common sexually transmitted infections. These include, but are not limited to: HIV, Chlamydia, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and Herpes. Each STI can be tested for individually or combined with others as part of a more conclusive screen. All our screens have been designed by a panel of medical experts, so you get the peace of mind you need regarding your sexual health.
What is the difference between an STI and an STD?
There is no difference other than the end letter. An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. Infection is used to encourage people to get tested and treated as it is less scary than having a disease.
Your confidential appointment in Melbourne will be with a qualified clinician, or phlebotomist, who will take your samples and Better2Know's advisors can answer any questions you may have. Once your blood, swab and/ or urine sample has been collected, it will be analysed at our accredited, Australian laboratory.

STI and HIV Testing in Melbourne
STI diagnoses for infections like Syphilis and Gonorrhoea have risen sharply in Melbourne in recent years. Rates of Syphilis in the city have reached a 60-year high, whilst cases of Gonorrhoea in Melbourne are over 40 times higher than they were 25 years ago. These are worrying statistics and if you have any concerns about Syphilis, Gonorrhoea, or any other sexually transmitted infection, you should get an STI test with Better2Know.
Better2Know has many private sexual health clinics and STI testing centres across Melbourne, including the suburbs of Carlton, Richmond, Footscray, Albert Park, Windsor, and many more. Following your appointment in the city, you will receive your results within a maximum of five working days of your sample’s arrival at our certified laboratory. This is dependent on the test you select, with many of Better2Know’s STI screens returning results as early as one working day from receipt of sample by our lab. Results are reported online to the secure patient area of our website. This is accessible by you at any time. A trained sexual health advisor will then contact you as soon as all your results become available.
