Get STI Lab Tests Anywhere in South Africa


Overseas, getting a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) test once a year or whenever you start a new relationship is just the normal thing to do, but unfortunately South Africa is a bit behind the times.

For most South Africans, STI tests are hard to get and expensive. We’ve seen a lot of people want lab tests, which are the PCR test of the STI test world, but they are often only available in the big cities. Meaning the most accurate kind of STI test is out of reach for most South Africans.

Why Do We Need Easy STI Lab Tests?

South Africans need easy STI Lab testing because we have a huge problem with STIs. STIs are incredibly sneaky, so much so that most people don’t even know they have them. The majority of people have absolutely no symptoms, despite the issues they are causing to our bodies.

So with no testing or obvious symptoms, most people have no clue they have them and unknowing pass these infections on to their partners.

Some of the most common STIs are easily treatable with antibiotics. That means the whole mess of having an STI in your body or passing on the infection to your partner can be so easily avoided.

But most of the STI tests, South Africans only can get rapid tests. This isn’t ideal. Rapid tests are great for a quick screening, but for something this important a lab test is the best option.
