STI and an STD: What is the difference?
An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. These two phrases can be used to mean the same thing. Most people are more comfortable saying they have an infection than a disease and so STI is becoming the more acceptable term.
Once you arrive at our sexual health facility in Warrnambool, you will be seen by a qualified phlebotomist who will take your samples.
