Why is STD Testing Important?

It can be hard to know if you have an STD. While some may present symptoms, others do not. An STD test is the simplest way to discover if you need any treatment. Knowing more about your sexual health is also important because it will stop you from spreading infections to other partners.

If any STDs are found, most can be treated with antibiotics or topical preparations. Your doctor will be able to prescribe you the best course of treatment. They will also be there to give you advice about your sexual health.

To get your home STD test, book your consultation here. With Instant Consult, you will get an appointment almost immediately as the wait time is less than fifteen minutes. You will talk to a qualified online doctor about any symptoms you may have or your circumstances. They can then send you a pathology test that you can print and present or email to any pathology centre throughout Australia.

Your consultation will take place over a video call. To access Instant Consult, you will need a computer or smart device, along with an internet connection.

When will i get my STD test results if i do it at home?

Once you have completed your test, you can get your results within 2-3 days. A member of our team will contact you to arrange your follow-up consultation with the requesting doctor.

If your results show that you need treatment, your doctor can then give you an online prescription. You can get an e-prescription that can be sent to your phone and taken to your nearest pharmacy. Alternatively, you can send your online prescription to, and they can post your medication directly to you.
