STI and an STD: What is the difference?
An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. They both mean all of the infections and diseases that we can help you to test for. Infection feels easier to deal with and so STI is becoming the more used term in sexual health clinics.
At your appointment in Wollongong, your samples will be taken by one of our phlebotomists. They will not ask you any embarrassing questions. Once collected, your samples will be sent to our fully accredited, Australian laboratory for fast and efficient analysis. Results should be ready within one to five working days of your sample’s arrival at the laboratory, though this may vary depending on your selected test or screen. As soon as your results are ready, we will post them to the secure patient area of our website, so you can access them online. We will also contact you once all your results become available, unless you request us not to.
