At UBC Okanagan's student health clinic, we provide treatment and consultation for any student health concerns, and offer health information and referrals for physical, emotional or sexual/reproductive health.
Our clinic team of Registered Nurses and General Practitioners can assist students with:
- Assessment and treatment of health problems
- Management of illness
- First Aid
- Injury management
- Sexual health including birth control, Plan B, pregnancy testing, STI testing and Pap screens
- Lab tests, blood work, x-rays, ultrasounds and scans
- Harm reduction supplies
- Allergy shots
The Health and Wellness team provides sexual health information, sexual counselling, pregnancy testing, PAP screening, sexual health supplies (e.g. condoms) and testing for sexual transmitted infections (i.e. STI Screening).
We assist students to speak comfortably about sex and to navigate their sexual relationships. Many people struggle with finding the words to use when talking about sex and sexual relationships. We are trained to be sensitive listeners and to help students ask for what they need.
- Education about all methods of contraception
- Emergency contraception
- Pregnancy testing
- Counselling of options regarding pregnancy
- Cervical cancer screening (Pap Test) is a test that can find abnormal cells in the cervix before they become cancerous. The test is free and can be done by a healthcare provider in the clinic. All women age 25 to 69 should be screened every 3 years if PAP results are normal.
- Cervical cancer usually has no symptoms. Symptoms may include: abnormal vaginal bleeding (such as bleeding between periods, bleeding during/after sex); abnormal or persistent vaginal discharge, and/or pelvic pain or pain during sexual intercourse.
