Sexual Health Centres

Due to COVID-19, limited services are available and we're unable to see or book appointments for all clients. Testing for sexually transmitted infections can also be done with your doctor or at your local walk-in clinic.

No walk-ins unless you're picking up free condoms from our St. Catharines location.

Limited appointments are available at our 277 Welland Ave., St. Catharines location. To speak with a nurse about your health concern, call 905-688-3817 or 1-800-263-5757.

Our Fort Erie, Niagara Falls and Welland Sexual Health Centres are closed.

Services

Our sexual health centres are staffed by nurses that provide:

  • Sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment
  • Birth control
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Morning-after pill
    • If you forgot to use birth control, didn't take your birth control on time, or had a condom break, you can take the morning-after pill within five days of having sex to reduce your chance of pregnancy. If you forgot to take your birth control on time, get back on schedule.
    • You can buy the morning-after pill from a sexual health centre, outreach nurse or over the counter at all pharmacies
  • Unplanned pregnancy options counselling
  • Free condom
  • Outreach nurse services

You don't need a health card to visit a sexual health centre. All services are free and confidential.
