LOCATION CHANGE! Please find the clinic in the MB-atrium!

In an ongoing effort to make STI testing more accessible and convenient, Concordia Health Services is offering a special testing clinic! Drop-in the MB-Atrium to get up-to-date: it's quick, easy and important. 

If you're sexually active, regular STI testing is an important part of taking care of your overall health.

Here's how it works

  • If you have a penis, a healthcare professional will invite you to urinate in a cup in the bathroom nearby. Very little urine is needed, but it’s best if you go one hour without urinating before doing the test.
  • If you have a vagina, a healthcare professional will instruct you on how to get the sample with a swab in the bathroom nearby. It’s fast, easy and painless.
  • The whole process takes a few minutes.
  • It takes approximately two weeks for the clinic to receive your test results. You can book an appointment on-the-spot to receive your results at Health Services. 

Remember to bring your Medicare or Blue Cross card so we can send your sample to the lab!

Why get tested?

  • STI-testing is recommended every 6 - 12 months for everyone who is sexually active  — think of it as part of your regular health routine! Many clinics have been closed for routine testing during pandemic measures, so it's likely that you're due for testing. 
  • Rates of STIs like chlamydia and gonorrhea are on the rise in Québec, and young people between 15 and 24 — university-age — are most at risk of getting and spreading these infections.
  • According to the American Sexual Health Association, one in two sexually active young people will get an STI by the age of 25.
  • Gonorrhea and chlamydia are curable!
  • You could have a sexually transmitted infection without any symptoms, but physical damage can still result if it goes untreated, and you could be spreading the infection to others.
