Where to get free condoms
Young people can access free condoms in Tayside with or with out a CCard. having a CCard means that you can go any where with the CCard or free condoms logo and get free condoms.
The scheme is anonymous, but you are required to sign up and also to have a brief 1:1 chat and demonstration if you are under 16. This will happen with a trained worker and give you the opportunity to ask any questions.
Condoms are made of very thin rubber or polyurethane, condoms come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colours and flavours. A condom is rolled down over the erect penis and stops sperm having contact with a partner’s body.
Condoms and femidoms are the only methods of contraception that provide effective protection against HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections. There is no minimum age for buying condoms.
More young people are beginning to go Double Dutch. This is where condoms are used with another form of contraception for extra protection against infections and pregnancy.
When buying a condom, check the expiry date and for a kite mark. Oil based products weaken condoms eg Vaseline, baby oil, lipstick. However, water-based lubricants such as KY Jelly and Senselle can be used.
