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 the more common term.
Once you have arrived at our discreet private STI testing centre in Mount Gambier, a qualified phlebotomist will see you before taking your samples and sending them to our fully certified, Australian laboratory for analysis. Then, depending on which screens or tests you have chosen, your results will be ready within 1-5 working days of our laboratory receiving your sample. You will be given access to our patient log in area where the Better2Know medical team will report your results as soon as they are ready. If requested, a member of our sexual health advisory team will also contact you regarding your results so that you can get answers to any questions you may have.
