Better2know - Anonymous HIV screening.

Postby advisor » Wed Jan 17, 2018 7:45 am

Hi all, just to put it out there. I found a site called " better2know.co.za" where one can do all the Std and hiv tests done without a visit to your family doctor.
It's online booking and payment ,followed by an appointment at a Lancet lab for blood and urine tests. I decided to have a full screen test ,to be sure. Cost R4000 but as the title says, it's better to know. Fortunately I tested negative in all tests and feel better for it.
Hope this is of use to some who might have doubts.
Stay safe guys.

Not all test categories are R4k, one can select what they want to be tested for. I decided to go for the full screen and that was R4k . Some are as high as R6-7 k, it's up to you.
End of the day, use it or don't. I always wanted to know of a place I could get tested without going to a Dr . This way, I select my tests, I pay and then go directly to the lab and they send me my results. If I'm tested positive, they will then refer you to a Dr who will prescribe the necessary medication.
Just put it out there, as I say, if you'd prefer to live in doubt ,go for it. If ,you know of another option , good.

Advisor,

I went to my local doctor and said I need an HIV test as my sports federation requires all athletes to be HIV negative (BS story).

She took blood samples not only for HIV but for other kak too, sent it to Pathlab, and got the medical aid to pay for it.

That four grand could have bought you some Bitcoin or it could've gotten you laid at least for top notch punts.

Each to their own. Clearly my post has attracted negative responses so I take it everyone is sorted . My apologies for steering you all in the wrong direction.

Advisor, thank you for your info, it is valuable I believe so don't be disheartened by any negative comments. I am certain there are a few of us who will keep this thread in mind.
Especially those who can afford it as well as need to keep their anonymity in check ;)

Not negative from my side. Was just curious as to what's the going rate at a clinic vs this option?

Thanks for the heads up though!!

Went to Lancet earlier this week. R196 cash price for HIV test only. Don't need a doctor's referral or anything
