Don't stress, get a test

Getting tested for STIs is easy and should be a normal part of your life if you’re having sex.

If you're worried about getting an STI test, just remember health professionals talk to people about their sexual health every day. They’ll be happy you’re taking control of your health. There’s no need to feel embarrassed, and it’s a lot easier than you think.

Where can I get tested?

There are many ways to get an STI test in Queensland.

The fastest and easiest way is with your GP.

You can also use Aboriginal medical services, sexual health clinics, True Relationships and Reproductive Health, and other community-based services that offer sexual health care.

If you need an interpreter, ask your GP or local health service to organise one for you.

13 HEALTH Webtest – free chlamydia and gonorrhoea urine test

If you're 16 or older, live in Queensland, and going to a health service is an issue for you, you can use 13 HEALTH Webtest to order free chlamydia and gonorrhoea testing.

Here's how it works:

  1. Fill in the Webtest online form.
  2. Download the pathology request form.
  3. Visit a collection centre and provide a urine sample.
  4. Get your test results.

If your test result is positive, the Webtest team will call and let you know. They can help you find a GP or sexual health clinic to get treatment.

If your result is negative, you'll get a short SMS or email to let you know.

If you think you have chlamydia or gonorrhoea in your throat or rectum, we don't recommend using 13 HEALTH Webtest. A urine test doesn't detect infections in those parts of your body. You'll need to visit a GP or other health provider to get tested.
