Are you looking for help with your sexual health? There are many different types of specialists and clinics who can help. Here is a resource to help you find ones that are best suited to you.
For most requirements, it is best to start by visiting your family doctor. However, if you are concerned about privacy and wish to discuss an issue with a doctor who is not personally connected to you or your family you can visit a walk-in clinic of which there are many.
How to find a walk-in clinic near you. Go to Google Maps and center the map at your location and then type in “Walk-in medical clinic.” If you bring your Ontario health card, the consultation will be at no charge.
Regional sexual health clinics
