Sexual Health and Contraception

Sexual health is an important part of your health and wellbeing.  At the Student Wellness Centre, a nurse is available to dispense low cost birth control when you have a prescription from a doctor at the Student Wellness Centre.

Same day services include:

  • A nurse is available to talk with you about emergency contraception (Plan B)
  • Pregnancy testing
  • STI testing: when experiencing symptoms or if a partner has tested positive

Book an appointment with a doctor at the Student Wellness Centre:
  • To discuss birth control options, or to renew your birth control prescription.
  • For routine STI testing (if you are experiencing STI symptoms or if a partner has tested positive, you can access our walk-in service to see a doctor that day)
  • To discuss cervical cancer screening (Pap test) if you are over the age of 21 and are or ever have been sexually active
  • To discuss immunizations available to help protect against illness spread through sexual contact (for example, the HPV vaccine)
