We’re here to help you get tested for STIs conveniently and privately and you will find some information about symptoms of STIs, how you’re tested and how they’re treated on our What We Test For page or you can head over to our FAQ section for additional information. If you want information about testing ‘window periods’ this is located at the bottom of our Who Can & Should Get Tested page.
There are sexual health info lines in operation across Australia that are manned by trained Sexual Health nurses. If you’re concerned you may have contracted an STI they will be able to guide you in dealing with the situation.
There is local support for people living with HIV across Australia and if you have been diagnosed they’re definitely worth reaching out too!
