What samples are required?
The Better2Know Instant Chlamydia and Instant Gonorrhoea tests both require a swab to be taken from the affected area. For women, this is a vaginal swab and for men it is a urethral swab. As the Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea bacteria live inside our cells, a swab is the best way to collect the sample necessary for the most accurate Instant test results.
Our Instant tests for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C are all performed on a small blood sample. If you are having any of these tests, your clinician will collect the blood drops needed from a quick and painless finger prick. Your clinician will answer any questions you may have and will be able to tell you more about the tests you are having.
What if I test positive?
Better2Know's excellent clinical services are supported by our outstanding medical team and patient services. If you test positive with our Instant Test for Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea, we will provide you with the prescription you need for the appropriate treatment at no extra charge. You will then need to take your prescription to a pharmacy to purchase the required antibiotics.
If you test positive with our Instant Tests for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C, with your permission, your clinician will immediately take a further blood sample from your arm. This will be sent to our CPA accredited laboratory for further testing - again, at no further cost or charge to you.
Should the laboratory tests confirm an infection, Better2Know’s Medical Team will contact you with a referral into an appropriate specialist service where you can receive any long term treatment and follow-up required.
