Sexual Health Testing in Mildura

Better2Know provides confidential testing for a wide range of sexually transmitted infections. Each STI can be tested for on its own or combined with others to make a more conclusive sexual health screen. All our screens are designed and reviewed regularly by medical specialists and our experienced booking team will help you select the right option for you.
What is the difference between an STI and an STD?
The two terms refer to the same infections (or diseases). An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. We can help you to get tested for all of them. Doctors feel that infections are thought to be more treatable and less scary and so STI is becoming more the more common term.
One of our most popular and comprehensive screens is the Full STI Screen. This will detect: HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma. The Full Screen requires a blood sample and a urine sample only. It is also possible to include testing for infections such as Herpes or Hepatitis C, should you wish to do so. If you test positive for any of these infections, Better2Know will get you an appointment with one of our doctors who will get you a prescription for any medicines you require. We can also refer you to specialist services in the event your infection requires further investigation or complex treatment.
