Its more common than you think
Genital herpes is most commonly caused by the herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2), however, it can also be caused by the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), which is usually more associated with oral herpes (also known as cold sores).
The herpes virus is transmitted by close contact with an infected person, usually through broken skin, and generally through sexual activity. Both viruses are contagious, even when symptoms are not visible, so it is important to treat the virus effectively to reduce the outbreak’s length, severity and spreading.
There is currently no cure for genital herpes, and outbreaks can be frequent, causing sores and blisters in genital areas. However, symptoms can be easily managed with antiviral medications.
Our Partner Doctors can assist you with the medication you need to manage symptoms of an outbreak or prescribe you with up to 3 months of chronic suppression treatment, which can suppress the virus and reduce outbreaks by up to 80% with the use of daily medication.

Can genital herpes be treated online?
Please note, that we are not an emergency service, and if you require urgent care please seek in-person treatment.
Our Partner Doctors reserve the right to refuse treatment based on their professional medical and ethical opinion.
How much does Contro’s genital herpes treatment service cost?
After a successful consultation, cash customers will additionally be charged for their prescribed medication. The treatment price will vary and will depend on which medication(s) your assigned Partner Doctor prescribes you. Our Partner Doctors will always work within your budget and ensure you get the best possible treatment available. The total cost for cash customers is from R460 depending on your diagnosis and prescribed medication.
The total cost for medical aid customers is R300 if your medication claim is successful.
Does Contro replace my primary doctor?
Can I claim through my medical aid?
Yes, but only for your medication costs. Medical aid customers are still required to pay our R300 consultation fee at checkout. We are working hard to get the medical aids to cover this service fee.
Our Partner Pharmacy will make the claim for your medication with your medical aid scheme. If your claim is unsuccessful we will reach out to you and confirm you are happy to pay privately for your medication instead.
If you are unsure whether your medical aid scheme will cover your prescribed medication, or allow you to use your savings to pay for your prescribed medication, please contact your provider.
When and how is my medication delivered to me?
Our Partner Doctors offer consultations Monday – Friday excluding public holidays. We aim to offer you a consultation within 2 business days.
During your consultation, your assigned Partner Doctor will ask if you would like to have your medication delivered or if you would like to receive the prescription via email. If you opt for the delivery option, your prescription will be sent electronically to our Partner Pharmacy. Our Partner Pharmacy will contact you telephonically to confirm your details and delivery address and will make a claim on your behalf if you have provided medical aid details.
Their pharmacy team will prepare and despatch your medication to your chosen delivery address. Once your order has been despatched, delivery time is 1-3 business days.
You will receive an SMS from our Partner Pharmacy to notify you that your medication has been despatched. This will contain a tracking number that will allow you to track your medication with the applicable courier service here.
Please note, you cannot change your delivery address once payment has been processed and your prescription has been sent to our Partner Pharmacy for processing.

Wow - What an incredible service
Filled out the online form, had a few automatic emails to get a telephonic call from a doctor and wow. Super friendly Doctor, very helpful, explained everything I needed to know about the medication and meds dispatched within a day to my home. Greatest service ever.
This is the most genius thing ever
This is the most genius thing ever! Quick consultation with expert advice. Got my delivery a day after - to my door. I don’t have to pay doctors fees and prescriptions which is close to 1k. Extremely affordable and convenient. Love it!
Everything is simple and you won't be disappointed!!
The response and the next step is always clear and communicated immediately. I loved my phone call consultation with Dr. Wihcone Mouton as she made me feel so comfortable. My medication was delivered quickly and in time for me to take it. I am so grateful that Contro exists
Efficient and Discreet
Brilliant service. Very quick, easy, efficient and discreet. This is great for people who don't have the time, or in many cases the nerve to go to a doctor in person to get their medication scripts. I recommend this service 100%
