Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) and HIV Testing

Drop-in clinics operate on a first come first served basis. Public Health reserves the right to limit the number of clients during these clinics. You can also receive confidential STI testing at your family doctor's office.

Testing is the only way to know for certain if you have a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Some STIs do not cause symptoms and you could pass them on if you don't know you are infected.

Our clinics provide testing, treatment, education and referrals for sexually transmitted infection, including HIV testing. All services are free and confidential. No health card is required. Our drop-in clinic hours are shown below. Limited number of appointments are available with the nurse based on
availability and nursing assessment. Please call 519 883 2267 (choose option "5") to speak to a nurse, or email us at Sexualhealth@regionofwaterloo.ca. All calls will be returned within one business day.

We also offer:

  • Access to birth control methods and pap tests (for 24-year olds and under)
  • Follow-up on post-therapeutic abortion
  • Treatment for genital warts (HPV)

Region of Waterloo Public Health clinics are LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer/Questioning) positive; sex trade workers are welcome.

Note: Hepatitis B vaccine is available free to individuals with sexual and/or needle-sharing risk factors. Free condoms are also available.
