Do I need a Sask Health Card to use your services?

You do not need a Saskatchewan Health Card to access our services. We accept health cards from across Canada. For folks from other countries without a valid Canadian Health Card, we would only be able to offer STI testing because of restrictions put in place by the Health Authority.

If someone has a health card but doesn’t have it on them or doesn’t know their number, we can issue a temporary number to use until they are able to provide it.

How long is a copper IUD string?

Length of the string depends on where they are cut by the practitioner who inserts the IUD. Our NP cuts them around 2-3cm long. Usually a person can feel the IUD strings sticking out of their cervix, but that depends on how deep their vaginal canal is and if a person’s fingers can reach there. Over time, the strings can soften and curl around the cervix so they are less noticeable.

What are genital warts?

Genital warts are a sexually transmitted infection caused by HPV. Click here for more information. If you think you may have genital warts, a nurse practitioner or physician will have to inspect your genitals to diagnose and treat them. Treatment may require a few appointments. Give us a call to find out more.

Do you mail emergency contraception? I’m in a small town and have no way of getting it.

We are unable to mail emergency contraception. There are now some online services that mail out birth control but because Plan B is most effective within the first three days after unprotected sex and requires a prescription to purchase it in Saskatchewan, you would need to see a pharmacist as soon as possible. It’s unfortunate that sexual health services in small towns can be limited and we wish there were easier options for people. Read more! “Do you mail emergency contraception?
