For these and other communities, online booking for Telehealth STI Testing and Contraception appointments is also an option. To book a Telehealth appointment online, click here.

When you call to book your appointment, please:

  • be as specific as possible about what you need so our team can find the right appointment for you (e.g. say ‘I need a new Mirena IUD’, rather than ‘I need to renew my contraception’).
  • have your BC Care Card ready when you call to book. If you do not have a valid BC Care Card, you can still book an appointment and there will be a service fee starting at $40, depending on the service. To learn about fees, contact Sex Sense.
