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.
Testing with Better2Know is simple. At your chosen clinic, a trained nurse or phlebotomist will collect the samples required for the STIs you want to test for. Following your confidential appointment, your samples will be sent to our certified laboratory for efficient, accurate analysis. For many screens, you will receive your results as quickly as one to two working days. You can track the progress of your results online in your patient area where you will be able to view them as soon as they are ready. Once all your test results have been reported, a member of our Patient Services team can contact you by phone, SMS, or email.
