Students can access FREE condoms from the SU office. Just come in and ask to see the VP Education & Welfare! Other places to get them from include:
- Collect them from a Sexual Health Clinic / some GP surgeries
- Order them to your house via the Get It! Condom Scheme
- Get it! is a new condom scheme for young people who live, study, work or socialise in the borough of Wandsworth. If you are aged between 16 and 24, you can order free condom packs online that get sent straight to your door. You can register in the SU, just swing by the VP Education and Welfare’s office or register here online.
In the case where unprotected sex has taken place, emergency contraception is available. This includes:
- Copper Coil
- ‘Morning after pill’ - there are two different types available
It is important to note that the sooner after sex they are taken, the more effective they are.
You can get Emergency Contraception and advice for free from NHS Walk-In Clinics and Sexual Health Clinics. You can buy the ‘morning after pill’ over the counter at a Pharmacy (such as Boots on Tooting High Street).
There are many different forms of contraception, and it’s important to find the one that suits you! Your GP or local Sexual Health Clinic can provide more information, or drop in to see the VP Education & Welfare.
