Get a STI Check in Sydney

How does this work?

  • Complete our easy questionnaire and receive your STD/STI test referral instantly – no doctor visit required.
  • Print and take your referral to your choice of pathology testing centre in Sydney or Australia wide (Google pathologist for your nearest centre)
  • Get tested! See what STIs we test for (HIV and Chlamydia tests are requested for all, other tests may be included based on your questionnaire responses).
  • Results delivered discreetly to your phone in 2-3 days.

If you have any questions about the process please read How It Works or our FAQ.

Ready to get tested?

  • You need to be aged 16 years or older.
  • The cost for the referral is $34.99. In most cases the pathology practice will bulk bill so this is all you’ll pay.
  • We accept payment by MasterCard, Visa or American Express.
  • We need you to complete the following clinically designed questionnaire to determine what tests you require. Please let us reassure you all your answers are strictly confidential and it’s way less awkward than answering the same questions face to face.
  • If you have your Medicare card handy please grab it, otherwise remember to write it on the form before handing it over to the pathology centre to avoid being charged. If you aren’t eligible for Medicare you can still use our service but may need to pay for the pathology tests.

Who is Stigma Health?

We are an online healthcare service that aims to make your life more convenient by eliminating the barriers like embarrassment and inconvenience, which often prevent people from undergoing simple medical tests. We started with STIs because they are a serious problem in Australia and are for the most part easily tested for and treated, but we will be expanding our service offering soon so stay tuned!

Can I get an STI Test through Stigma Health?

You can currently undergo a convenient and private STI test through us if you are in Australia and are over 16 years of age. Fit the criteria? Let’s get started.
If you are under 16 then we, unfortunately, cannot provide you with a Pathology Referral to get an STI test. We urge you to visit a doctor to arrange a test ASAP. Alternately you can visit an STI clinic or hospital clinic to get an STI test. If you want to talk to someone prior to doing so you will find the details for several Sexual Health info lines operating across Australia in our Resources section.

Why Should I get tested with Stigma Health instead of going to my GP?

Convenience, pure and simple. If you want to skip the trip to the GP, then the Pathology Centre then the one back to your GP for the results then we’re your solution!
If you get tested with us we deliver your Pathology Referral online and you only have to make the one trip to the Pathology Centre and that’s it, your results are delivered to you safely, securely and privately directly to your mobile phone.
Not to mention we’re saving you the awkward conversation!

Is Stigma Health legal?

Absolutely. The process may seem new and different to how you usually go about medical tests, but we are in full compliance with Australian law and Medical Board of Australia Guidelines for Technology-based Patient Consultations.
