What is STI testing?

STI testing is the process of running medical tests to check for any sexually transmitted infections (STIs). It is quick, easy, and confidential. Most STI tests only require a blood test and a urine sample but may also involve getting swabs taken of certain parts of the body such as the throat and genitals.

Why is STI testing important?

STIs can be spread during oral, vaginal, or anal sex and are more common than you might think. However, many STIs don’t show any symptoms, which is why getting tested every 6-12 months is important to protect you and your partner/s and to ensure any STIs are treated as quickly as possible.

If you haven’t had an STI test before, or it’s been a while since your last test, it can be hard to know where to start.

The good news is that there are so many different places that offer STI testing in NSW including in person, online and at-home options. So no matter your circumstances, there’s an STI testing service for you.
