So, you have done the right thing and decided to have an STI test, and have chosen to use Better2Know’s services. You have visited one of our clinics across the UK and have enjoyed a discreet and confidential service at a time to suit you, or ordered one of our home testing kits and tested yourself in the comfort of your own home.
Better2Know has the fastest results times in the UK: one to five days depending on the test, however the anxiety waiting for results to come back is never fun, and the big worry is what if the results come back positive.
Do not worry; Better2Know is here to help you. Our patient care does not stop with testing, and we will contact you whether your results are positive or negative. If you test positive not only will we help you to get the appropriate treatment, but also where you can receive any support. If you test positive for HIV, we will arrange a repeat test, and our partnership with the UK’s leading HIV and sexual health charity the Terrence Higgins Trust will help sign post you to counselling and advice that you may need.
Better2Know can help you with a prescription to get the STI treated and you back to normal, or write a referral letter if you need specialist advice. We can also book you in for a doctor’s consultation if you would like to discuss your results further, and of course you can take your results to your own GP if you prefer. Whatever your needs, we will produce the best treatment pathway tailored to suit you and your needs. The most important thing to remember is that knowing you have an STI is the first step in treating it, and the earlier it is treated, the less detrimental to your long term health it will be.
