Why should I have a C-Card?
Condoms not only protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) but also can help prevent unwanted pregnancies.
Having a C-Card enables you to access FREE condoms whenever you need them allowing you to stay safe and in control of your sexual health.
- Even when using condoms you should consider regular screening for sexually transmitted infections every time you start a new relationship or every 12 months if you’re in a relationship.
- If there is ever any type of condom failure or you’re worried that something went wrong during sex, you should seek advice about emergency contraception.
If you are having problems getting condoms please phone the C-Card team on 01392 284965.
