Remove the STIgma
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.
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?
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.

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%
