Contraception is used to prevent unwanted pregnancy and protect you against sexually transmitted infections.  The condom is the only form of contraception that protects against sexually transmitted infections including HIV.

The Advice Service offers a variety of free condoms, including regular, king size and slim fit.  To pick up your free condoms just pop into the Advice Service in the Students’ Union, there is a table near the door with baskets of various condoms.  If you require non-latex condoms, please ask an advisor who will be able to give you some.

The Advice Service also offer free femidoms, dental dams and lube, just ask an advisor.

In addition to condoms, there are other forms of contraception on offer to suit you.  If you would like to talk through your contraception options you can speak to your GP or Nurse or Hathersage Centre https://www.fresh4manchester.nhs.uk/find-out-the-facts/contraception-methods/
