How soon after a sexual encounter can I get tested?

Better2Know’s comprehensive Instant Six Screen provides accurate results just 28 days after potential exposure to infection. This suggested four-week period is known as the incubation period. If you test within this time it can affect the accuracy of your results. If you are unsure about your incubation period, or have any other question regarding your sexual health, please call our expert Patient Services team on the number above.

Which samples does the Instant Six Screen require?

Better2Know’s Instant Six Screen provides rapid results for six STIs using blood and swab samples only. Your doctor at your private appointment will use swab samples to look for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea infections. The blood samples will test for the other four STIs, including HIV. Your blood sample can be collected by finger prick lancet, or you may be given the option of providing an intravenous blood sample for your convenience, if preferred. This screen has no dietary or fasting requirements.

What will happen at my private appointment?

A your private instant testing appointment, you doctor will explain your test and take your swab and blood samples for analysis. This is performed in the sexual health testing centre. You will receive your results shortly after the test has been conducted. This is Better2Know’s most comprehensive instant screening option and is designed and reviewed by a panel of sexual health specialists to give you the peace of mind you deserve. Our expert Patient Services team can schedule a confidential appointment at a time and date that is convenient for you.
