STIs, also commonly referred to as STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) are infections that are spread through unprotected sexual activity such as anal, vaginal, or oral sex. Some STIs can be passed on by skin-to-skin contact. In South Africa alone it is estimated that there are over 10 million cases of STIs recorded per year. Common STIs include chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, genital warts, syphilis and trichomoniasis.

Most STIs can be treated easily, however without immediate treatment they can lead to more serious health problems.

Our Partner Doctors can assist you with the medication you need to treat your STI.

STI’s

Which STIs do Contro’s Partner Doctors treat?
Contro’s STI service allows for the treatment of chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, genital warts, syphilis, mycoplasma and trichomoniasis.
Do Contro’s Partner Doctors treat HIV/Aids?
Our Partner Doctors are currently unable to treat HIV/Aids via our platform or prescribe PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis for HIV), however, we are working hard to add a HIV/Aids testing and treatment service offering as soon as possible. Sign up and we’ll let you know when we launch the service.
How are STIs transmitted?
When engaging in sexual contact with another person there is always a risk of getting an STI. Some STIs cause symptoms and others do not. A person with an STI can pass it to others through contact with skin, genitals, mouth, rectum, or body fluids. This includes contact through vaginal sex, anal sex, or oral sex.
How do I prevent STIs?
You can reduce you risk of getting an STI by using a barrier method, such as latex condoms, every time you engage in sexual activity. Both you and your partner(s) should regularly test for STIs before engaging in sexual activity.
When should I see a doctor?
If you have been informed by a partner who has tested positive for an STI or you have tested positive for an STI, you should seek medical assistance immediately. If you have not been tested, but are showing common symptoms of an STI, you should seek medical assistance immediately. The majority of STIs can be treated with prescription medication. Contro’s Partner Doctors will be able to advise you regardless of whether you have been tested, and can prescribe treatment based on your symptoms.

STI Treatment

Can you treat an STI online?

Yes, a doctor can treat an STI online based on your symptoms during a virtual consultation. At Contro, men and women over the age of 18 can chat with one of our Partner Doctors about their symptoms and get treatment prescribed and delivered to them from just R300.

Please note, 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.

Does Contro replace my primary doctor?
No, Contro’s service offering does not replace your primary doctor. We save you time and money by offering you a supplementary online delivery and subscription service, and therefore your assigned Partner Doctor does not replace your primary doctor or GP, and is not responsible for your ongoing primary care.
How much does Contro’s STI treatment service cost?

A virtual STI treatment consultation with one of our Partner Doctors costs R300. This includes all doctors fees, prescription fees and free delivery.

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 between R400 – R900 depending on your diagnosis and prescribed medication.

The total cost for medical aid customers is R300.

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.
