A great new website has been launched by Ottawa Public Health to encourage more people to get tested for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, two common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in Ottawa. The website provides accurate and straightforward information about Chlamydia and Gonorrhea as well as links to information about other STIs, contraceptives, as well as additional resources.
An exciting feature of this website is that it offers a quick and anonymous screening tool to help you decide if you should get tested. It also includes a downloadable requisition form that you can fill out at home (name, phone number, and health card number) and bring into any participating lab in Ottawa. The test is free! So get tested! Why not?
