About Options for Sexual Health Clinics:

Our clinics provide sexual and reproductive health services for all ages, all genders, and all orientations. Our clinicians are committed to providing you with confidential, nonjudgmental, youth-friendly, pro-choice, and sex-positive services.

Our services include low-cost birth control, STI care, Pap screening, pregnancy testing and pregnancy options counselling. The specific services provided in each of our clinics are clinician dependent and may vary from clinic to clinic.

We welcome new and returning clients, and no referral is necessary!

There are no service fees for clients with valid MSP (BC Provincial Government) coverage (this does not include birth control products). For clients with no MSP (BC Provincial Government) coverage, charges may apply. Please note our clinics are cash only.
