Why Do You Need STI Testing?
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are infections that are primarily transmitted through sexual contact. They can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, or sexual orientation. Common STIs include Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, HIV, and Hepatitis.
STI Clinic Australia offers convenient and confidential STI screening tests for people of all backgrounds and ethnicities. Our Online STI test has the following benefits:
STIs often show minimal or no symptoms, making it imperative to undergo regular screening tests. Early detection allows for timely treatment, preventing the progression of the infection and potential complications.
Prevention of Spread
Screening helps identify and treat infections promptly, reducing the risk of transmitting STIs to sexual partners. This not only protects your health but also contributes to community health by curbing the spread of infections.
