Confidential Sexual Health Testing on the Sunshine Coast
Better2Know has private sexual health facilities in the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. At conveniently located discreet sample collection centres across the region, we can test you confidentially for a wide range of STIs, including HIV. Sexually transmitted infections are increasing year on year in Queensland, affecting people of all ages, including those living on the Sunshine Coast. For example, the number of over-50s contracting Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea and Syphilis infections has almost doubled in the state in the last four years. With private STI testing centres in suburbs like Buddina and Birtinya, Better2Know provides confidential testing across the Sunshine Coast for each of these STIs and many more besides. Each infection can be tested for individually or combined with others as part of a comprehensive sexual health screen.
STI and an STD: What is the difference?
An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. There is no difference between them. They both include HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis and Herpes, but Doctors have said that patients prefer to test and treat for an infection. So STI has become the more widespread word
One of our most popular screens is the Full Screen, which includes testing for seven harmful STIs. These include: HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma. Should you choose to, you can also add testing for infections like Herpes and Hepatitis C to this screen. Our Sunshine Coast facilities are shown in blue on the map below.
