Better2Know’s outstanding sexual health testing services are available in the coastal city of Townsville. We have over 20 private sample collection centres in Townsville. They are staffed with qualified phlebotomists (someone who has been medically trained to collect blood). Each sexual health clinic in Townsville can do our full range of STI tests and screens.

Getting tested is the only way to know if you have an STI. Many people with an STI do not have any symptoms. This means that they can pass on the infection to a new partner without realising. Our doctors recommend that you have an STI and HIV test every 3 to 6 months or every time you have a new partner. This helps to protect your and your partner's health.

What will happen at my STI test appointment?

At your confidential appointment in Townsville, an experienced phlebotomist will collect your blood and/ or urine samples. Once your samples have been taken, they will be sent directly to our central, fully certified Australian laboratory for fast, accurate analysis. Depending on the test or screen you select, your results should be ready within five working days of your sample’s arrival at our laboratory. Many results will be available in only one to two days. You can access your results online by logging into your secure patient area. In addition, a member of Better2Know’s sexual health advisory team will contact you personally as soon as all your results are ready to be reported.

STI and an STD: What is the difference?

An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. The two abbreviations mean the same thing: HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Herpes and anything we can help you to test for. Doctors at sexual health clinics say that infection better describes having, testing and treating one of these bacteria, viruses or protozoa (mycoplasma in case you were wondering).
