Sexual Health and Contraception

As of January 1 2020, our birth control dispensary has been impacted and we are unable to source several of our main oral contraceptives. Your prescription on file can be faxed to the pharmacy of your choice by speaking with the information nurse. We apologize for the inconvenience.

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.

Other drop-in services include:

  • A nurse is available to talk with you about emergency contraception (Plan B)
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Free condoms
  • STI testing: when experiencing symptoms or if a partner has tested positive you can access our walk-in service during on call hours

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)
