Concerned that you might have a STI? Don’t hesitate to get help – get a test referral or prescription by using a sexual health clinic online today.

Infections can be physically uncomfortable and distressing and may be embarrassing to talk about with new partners. Give yourself peace of mind by getting tested as soon as possible. Medications may also help to alleviate symptoms.

Instant Consult connects you with a registered doctor via video call, allowing you to get help from a sexual health clinic online from the comfort of your home. Our doctors can provide referrals for STI testing as well as prescriptions for infection treatment and management.

How it works

When you request a consult, your doctor will chat with you via video call about your symptoms before deciding what steps to take next. If they suspect you may need an STI test they will send you a referral for a blood and/or urine analysis to take to any pathology collection centre across Australia. If you require medication they will send a prescription to your local pharmacy for immediate collection.

Once the results of any tests come back, your doctor will explain what the results mean and what to do next. They may discuss:

  • Whether you need further assessment
  • How to deal with a diagnosis
  • Your treatment options
  • Any ongoing risks
  • When you should be retested; and
  • How to prevent reinfection.

Most common sexually transmitted infections

A sexual health clinic detects infections which are transmitted through oral, anal or vaginal contact. While most infections are spread through fluids, some can be passed via skin-to-skin genital contact.
The most common symptoms of these infections are itching, rashes, sores, pain during urination, discharge or lumps. However, it is common to not experience any symptoms when you have an infection, which can make it difficult to tell if you have been affected. This is why it is important to have an annual check-up.

Here are the main infections that a sexual health clinic can detect:
