Are little pimples normal down there?

It depends! The skin on the genitals can look a little bumpy because of the hair follicles. If you shave or wax your pubic hair, you may have ingrown hairs which would look like pimples. Some sexually transmitted infections may cause bumps and sores. Molluscum contagiosum is a bumpy skin infection that can also be transmitted sexually. It’s a good idea to get a doctor or nurse practitioner to have a look, just in case.

Do you sell the abortion pill?

We do not. In Saskatchewan, mifegymiso (the abortion pill) is covered with your health card but needs to be prescribed by a doctor. Many doctors are unwilling to prescribe it. If you are considering mifegymiso, contact the Women’s Health Centre in the General Hospital at (306) 766-0586 as soon as possible because the pill can only be taken up to 9 weeks of pregnancy.

Do I need my health card to buy Plan B?

At Planned Parenthood Regina, you do not. We prefer that you have your health card number but can issue you a temporary one so that you can still access our services.

To purchase Plan B from pharmacies in Saskatchewan, a health card is required.
