Presenters: Mélanie Lacelle and Lyanne Rochon.
Back in the 70’s when women would discuss sexuality with their physicians the main topic was usually only contraception and rarely about Sexually Transmitted infections (STI). Nowadays we are seeing a shift in our way of thinking. People are more open-minded and due to social media, are more and more “getting out there”. Chlamydia, gonorrhea and even syphilis are making an ugly comeback and we are seeing and treating more mature adults than ever before.
In this workshop, you will be informed of the risks of STI even at a more mature age, how to talk to your physician and where to get the resources on safer sex and information on testing.
This presentation will be in French and in English, depending upon audience request.
