The Better2Know Platinum Screen is our most comprehensive set of tests for sexually transmitted infections and diseases. This screen is suitable for anyone who has had a new sexual experience or is considering entering a new relationship with someone. It is always a good idea to get a comprehensive set of tests to make certain that you are not carrying any infections and that you are not going to pass any infection on to a new partner. It is also a suitable choice for anyone who has had a sexual experience with a new partner. As most STI’s and STD’s do not show any symptoms, it is often impossible to know if your partner has any infection or if that infection has been passed on to you. The only way to know and to be certain is to get tested. The Better2Know Platinum screen is an excellent choice of tests and will give you the confidence that you are fully aware of your sexual health.
The Early Platinum Screen, meanwhile, includes testing for the same array of infections as the Platinum Screen, but with half the period of incubation. This means that you can test for the same amount of STIs just 14 days after an incident of concern. This popular testing option uses blood and urine samples to give you complete peace of mind over your sexual health status.
