If you are worried that you might have an STI call the Yellowknife Primary Care Centre. Ask for an appointment with the STI Nurse. This is a free and private service that provides:  

  • STI Screening & treatment
  • HIV testing
  • Hepatitis testing
  • Health teaching
  • Birth control options
  • Emergency contraception
  • Free condoms and lube
  • Referrals as needed.

A physician or nurse practitioner can also provide STI testing. The website RespectYourself.ca is a reliable source of information to help answer common questions regarding STIs.
