Moving forward we will be in the office answering calls and selling birth control with curbside pickup on Mon/Wed/Fri from 9am to 4pm. We have a few spots available for Depo Provera injections on Thursday, April 23rd so call us to book in if you need your shot within the next two weeks.
Questions can be sent to us over Facebook Messenger and we’ll do our best to answer between 9am and 4pm Mon-Fri.
STI testing is still unavailable so people are being treated based on noticeable symptoms with a phone consult and prescription faxed to a pharmacy. STI symptoms may include pain during urination or sexual activities, changes in discharge like smell, colour, and lumps, bumps or sores.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are best diagnosed with a urine test but since that testing is unavailable, most pharmacists are able to provide treatment by discussing symptoms. If you think you may have a UTI, call your pharmacist to see if they are able to help or reach out to us for a phone consult with our NP.
Yeast infections can cause genital itching and discharge that is white and clumpy. These can be treated over-the-counter with antifungals like fluconazole but you can also ask your pharmacist for assistance.

To our valued clients,
Planned Parenthood Regina (PPR) has been actively monitoring all of the latest updates on COVID-19 from the Federal, Provincial, and Regional governments. We are working diligently to make sure we are doing everything in our power to ensure the safety and health of both our clients and staff.
Situations can change quickly as we learn more about COVID-19 and how to prevent its spread to minimize the effects on our healthcare system. With this in mind, PPR will be implementing the following changes, effective immediately:
- HOURS: We will be open Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm and closed for lunch 12-12:45pm; unfortunately we are ending our evening and weekend hours until further notice
- If you have recently travelled out of the province – please take 14 days of self-isolation BEFORE booking an appointment with us
- If you have a fever (body temperature above 36-37°C) or are not feeling well – please call to cancel your appointment and do not attend the clinic
- Everyone coming into PPR will be required to sanitize their hands and have their temperature taken using a thermometer
- Please arrive no more than 10 minutes early for your appointments to limit our waiting room exposure
- NO WALK-INS – this includes STI testing, pregnancy tests, and Plan B; please call us ahead of time and let us know you will be coming
- All in-office counselling will be cancelled until further notice – options counselling will be done by phone and can be arranged by emailing our support worker at firstname.lastname@example.org
- IUD consults will also be done by phone and arranged by emailing our Director at: email@example.com
- All non-essential appointments will not be booked until further notice
- We encourage people purchase birth control for the next month as soon as possible, as we are unsure if we will be forced to close – PLEASE BE PREPARED
- We will NOT be accepting cash; however, we do have interact debit and credit purchases available
- We do NOT have “tap” for debit and credit purchases; we will disinfect our credit machine after every purchase
During the next few weeks, Planned Parenthood Regina may be required by our government close our doors to allow staff to self-isolate against the COVID-19 virus. This would be out of our control and we would try to give as much notice as possible. We will do all we can to serve our community and reduce harm. We are in this together.
Thank you for your understanding,
Planned Parenthood Regina Team
