STI and an STD: What is the difference?
They both mean the same infections/ diseases. Exactly the same, including HIV. An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. STI is the newer name as people prefer to have an infection than a disease.
At your confidential appointment in the city, you will be seen by a qualified phlebotomist who will collect your samples quickly and discreetly. Once taken, your blood, urine and/ or swab samples will then be sent for analysis at our fully certified, Australian laboratory. Results typically take between one and five working days following your sample’s arrival at our central laboratory. This can vary depending on your selected test or screen, with some results returned as early as one working day from receipt of sample. You can access these results at any time by logging into the secure patient area of our website. Furthermore, when all your results are ready, you will be contacted personally by a member of Better2Know’s sexual health advisory team.
