When Should I Book an STD Test in Sydney?

Sexual health is a bit of a taboo subject in many ways – there is Still a Stigma around sex, and this includes STD tests in Sydney and even worldwide. We are fortunate here in Australia that we have excellent provision for sexual health, but that doesn’t help patients that are uncomfortable sharing privateand personal details with their family GP.

Discreet and Convenient STD testing in Sydney

You can get STI testing in Sydney at family planning and sexual health clinics, as well as at a GP practice. For many people, it is not just the discomfort of speaking to someone about sexual matters; it is also a matter of convenience – and that is where online testing can make a real difference.

You should have an annual sexual health screening from when you become sexually active. You should also arrange STI anywhere in Australia when you:

  • Start a new sexual relationship.
  • Have had sex without a condom.
  • Are planning on having unprotected sex.
  • Are experiencing STI symptoms like painful urination, spotting or pelvic pain.

If any of these apply to you, then contact one of our Online Sydney Doctors who will help you to arrange appropriate testing so that you can ensure you are sexually healthy.

Arrange a consultation with one of our GPs via our website or app and you will be connected to an experienced and caring GP within 15 minutes. This includes our after-hours Sydney doctors.

You then visit your local collection centre to complete a simple, discreet test which will be sent to the lab. Once we have your results, we will contact you to discuss the next steps, whether that be further treatment or a simple Sydney online prescription.

How can I prevent needing STD testing?

There are many ways you can minimise your chances of contracting an infection. Using protection during intercourse is one way of greatly reducing the odds, however, it’s important to recognise that condoms are never 100% effective and spreading an infection or bacteria is still possible.
