Not in Saskatchewan. Abortion services are typically offered up to 14 weeks of pregnancy in Regina. Terminations in the 15th to 18th week depend on the doctors available and anything over that would likely be referred out of province. Contact the Women’s Health Centre in the Regina General Hospital at 306-766-0586 for more information about your options.
Yes, doctors and NPs can prescribe birth control to treat acne.
Birth control may be prescribed to treat a number of different ailments, like PMDD, migraines, endometriosis, and PCOS.
Spotting can be caused by many different things. It might be a side effect of starting birth control or missing a dose. It could be a symptom of an STI. To tell if it’s normal or not, it’s best to call us and ask to speak to a nurse or book in for an appointment.
We don’t but our nurse practitioners and physicians can give you a referral to a gynecologist who can.
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.
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.
A cervix may be bruised during deep penetration. Some people may be more likely to experience cervical bruising based on the length of their vaginal canal, the angle of their cervix, the size of their partner’s penis, and the sexual position used. The vaginal canal lengthens during arousal, so it’s less likely to be bumped or bruised during penetration. Read more! “Can cervical bruising occur regularly?”
Yes, we do. Click our “Services” tab and then click “Birth Control” to see our list of options and their prices.
Our doctors and nurse practitioners are unable to offer prenatal care but can give you a referral to someone who does.
