What is the difference between an STI and an STD?
All our sexual health centres test for all STIs and STDs. They are used to mean the same thing. An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. STI is becoming the more popular acronym as it shows how easily treated most STIs are.
At your appointment in Orange, you will be seen by a qualified phlebotomist who will collect your swab, urine and/ or blood samples. They will then be sent to our fully accredited, Australian laboratory for quick and efficient analysis. Results are ordinarily available within five working days of your sample’s arrival at our laboratory, though this is dependent on your selected test or screen. Results for certain tests, such as the Syphilis blood test, are returned as little as two working days from receipt of your sample. To access your test results online, login to the secure patient area of our website. A trained Better2Know sexual health advisor will also contact you as soon as all your results are ready.
