Confidential Sexual Health Testing in Wagga Wagga
Better2Know’s private and confidential sexual health testing services are available in Wagga Wagga. At our STI testing facilities across the city, you can get tested quickly and efficiently for a wide range of harmful infections, including HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, and many other infections. Each STI 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. The two phrases mean the same thing. At sexual health clinics, doctors and patients say that an infection feels like a better thing to have and to get treated easily.
At your discreet appointment in Wagga Wagga, your blood, swab and/ or urine samples will be taken by an experienced phlebotomist. Once your samples have been collected, they will be sent to our fully certified, Australian laboratory for fast and accurate analysis. Results will be ready within five working days of your sample’s arrival at our laboratory, though tests for infections like HIV and Syphilis will return results even earlier. Once your results become available, we will post them to the secure patient area of our website, so you can access them online. A member of Better2Know’s sexual health advisory team will also contact you as soon as all your results are ready.
