What is the difference between an STI and an STD?
Both terms are used, but STI is becoming more common. An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. Doctors have said that their patients at sexual health clinics prefer to have an infection, and it better describes how easy testing and treating can be.
Following your arrival at Better2Know’s discreet private STI clinic in Springfield, you will be seen by a qualified clinician. Your blood and/or urine samples will then be collected and sent to Better2Know’s highly accredited laboratory in Australia. Your confidential results will be available from one working day after your samples have arrived at our certified laboratory for fast, accurate testing. This will vary depending on the STI testing option you have selected.
Once all your results are ready to report, you will be contacted by a Better2Know advisor unless you request otherwise. You can choose the method of communication (email, SMS or telephone), or you may opt to contact us personally instead. Better2Know’s secure online patient area will also display your STI results as soon as they are available. Simply log in with the details your experienced advisor will provide upon confirming your private appointment in Springfield.

STI and HIV Testing in Springfield
Rates of STIs are rising in Queensland, with Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea and Syphilis amongst the most common infections. This has prompted Queensland Government to launch the ‘Stop the Rise of STIs’ campaign to increase awareness of STIs and correct misconceptions concerning sexual health.
Better2Know’s discreet private sexual health clinic in Springfield will provide extensive, quality medical health services, in an efficient and caring environment. Our highly trained clinicians are focused on meeting your needs, as well as providing assistance with issues regarding your personal health.
Better2Know’s STI screens and tests are designed with your sexual health concerns in mind. At our private STI clinics in Springfield, we provide fast, confidential and accurate testing for a wide range of sexually transmitted infections. These include:
- Herpes I/II
- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis C
Many sexually transmitted infections can show no symptoms in an infected individual. This is why it is important to get tested regularly to ensure an STI is not left untreated. Untreated sexually transmitted infections can affect the long-term outcome of your personal health. This includes complications such as infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease and epididymitis. If you do experience signs of an STI, symptoms can include:
- Pain when urinating
- Itching, redness or swelling
- Genital or anal discomfort
- Unusual discharge from penis or vagina
- Flu-like symptoms such as fever or a sore throat
- Genital or anal sores, lesions, ulcers or blisters
- Lower abdominal pain
- An increased need to urinate more frequently
If you test positive for a sexually transmitted infection, Better2Know will help you get the treatment you need. Our network of skilled doctors in Australia enables us to help you arrange a private consultation where you can discuss your results in more detail, and receive a prescription for the medication you require. Depending on the STI you are positive for, Better2Know can also refer you to a specialist who will offer additional advice and guidance on treatment moving forward. If you have any doubts about your sexual health, you should get tested as soon as possible.
