According to Jack Bloom, DA Shadow MEC on Health in Gauteng, ‘many young people between the ages of 20-29 did not fear an STI diagnosis because they knew it was curable with antibiotics’, but they rarely acknowledge that there are some STIs, including HIV, that are ‘only treatable.’
With most sexually transmitted infections, early detection and treatment is key to preventing any further health complications arising. You should pay regular attention to your sexual health, especially if you had a one-off encounter or have met a new partner. Better2Know has a wide variety of screens and tests that provide fast and accurate STI testing. Your sexual health advisor can arrange a private doctor’s consultation before your test or following your results. If you test positive for an infection, your Better2Know doctor will be able to discuss your diagnosis in more detail and provide a prescription for the medication you require. For blood borne STIs, Better2Know will refer you to a specialist service where you can receive further guidance and treatment options, if necessary.
