What is the difference between an STI and an STD?
Most people think that an infection is something easy to get and easy to treat. This refers to most of the sexually transmitted infections that we test for. An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. The two terms mean the same thing, STI is the newer acronym as people prefer to have an infection than a disease.
At your appointment in Perth, your samples will be collected swiftly and privately by an experienced clinician, or phlebotomist. Once your blood, swab and/or urine sample has been collected, it will be sent to our certified Australian laboratory for testing and analysis. You will receive your results within five working days of your sample’s arrival at our central laboratory, depending on the test or screen you select. Many results will be available sooner. Results are reported online to the patient log in area of our website. If requested, a trained sexual health advisor will also contact you directly as soon as all your results are available.
