Getting Treated

Although not all STIs are curable, all can be treated. If you’re diagnosed with an STI, your nurse or doctor will discuss your options with you. Be sure to follow all treatment instructions carefully and finish all your prescribed medication. Your doctor or nurse may want to schedule a follow-up exam to make sure all signs of the infection are gone. To get tested visit the “Getting Tested” page of this site for a list of Yukon clinics. If you want to talk to a health professional, you can talk to your doctor or community health nurse, or you can also call:
