I am not familiar with the treatment that your doctor has been using, but I think it is correct that alternative treatment are not covered by MSP.
Given how painful the treatment is, and your concerns that you might not want to continue with treatment, you could go to another doctor or clinic for a second opinion. If you have MSP, you can go to any doctor or clinic for an exam and treatment.
You can also go to Bute Clinic at 1170 Bute Street in the West End. It is a free STI clinic, open 11 – 6:30 pm Monday to Friday, and is always drop in. The nurses there can examine you and suggest a course of treatment. Genital wart treatment is free and is covered by MSP.
