Sexual Health Testing in Rockhampton
Better2Know is the global leader in sexual health testing services, with clinics and phlebotomy points throughout Australia and around the world. We have several private sample collection centres in Rockhampton, providing testing for a wide range of STIs, including HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea and Syphilis and many others.
What is the difference between an STI and an STD?
They are the same thing. An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. STI is becoming the more popular term as doctors have noticed that people prefer to have an infection than a disease.
At your Rockhampton appointment, you will be seen by a qualified phlebotomist who will collect your blood, urine and/or swab samples. Once collected, samples are sent to our certified, Australian-based laboratory where they will be analysed swiftly and efficiently. Depending on the STI test or screen you select, your confidential results will be ready within one to five working days of your sample’s arrival at the lab. Results are reported online to the secure patient log in area of our website, and you can access them at a time that is convenient to you. You will also be contacted by a member of Better2Know’s Patient Services staff, who will discuss your results with you. You can instead decide to contact us yourself.

STI and HIV Testing in Rockhampton
In recent years, there has been a continued increase in cases of sexually transmitted infections in Queensland. As a result, the state Government has committed more than $18 million for a sexual health strategy to combat the rate of rising STIs. With private facilities across Queensland, including the city of Rockhampton, you can get tested quickly and discreetly for a wide selection of common infections.
Each STI can be tested for individually or combined with others to make up one of our comprehensive sexual health screens. Should you need to speak to a doctor before your test, or following your results, Better2Know can make the appropriate arrangements for you. Remember, testing is the only way to be certain of your sexual health status. So, to protect your own health, and that of any current or future partners, stay safe and get tested – it is always Better2Know.
