STI and an STD: What is the difference?
Both phrases mean the same thing an STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. STI is the latest phrase as doctors at sexual health clinics say their patients preferred to have an infection than a disease.
At our sample collection centres in Toowoomba, you can get tested for a wide range of sexually transmitted infections. These include: HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, HPV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Herpes I and II, and many more. You can book these tests individually or as part of a combination of tests, known as a screen. It is entirely up to you. The most important thing is to stay safe and get yourself tested. As part of the Better2Know comprehensive STI testing service, should any of your results come back positive, we will organise a consultation with a doctor who will get you a prescription for any medications required or provide a referral to a specialist service if you need further assessments.

STI and HIV Testing in Toowoomba
In recent years, people under 50 had the most STI diagnoses of any age group in Queensland. Social factors such as travel and lower rates of condom use have contributed to this statistic. At Better2Know, we provide highly accurate testing without asking any uncomfortable questions.
