Sunshine Family Care offers free condoms (male and female).
Condoms make sex 10,000 times safer. Condoms protect individuals from contracting sexually transmitted infections (chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis, HIV, herpes, trichomoniasis, etc.) and unintended pregnancy.
Condoms are most effective against Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) that are transmitted through bodily fluids. Consistent and correct use of male or female condoms can reduce the chances of transmitting gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis, even if you have sex with multiple partners or do sex work. If you have penis-in-vagina sex with an external condom, you are 80% less likely to contract human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) compared to sex without a condom.
Some STIs like herpes, human papillomavirus (HPV) syphilis, and chancroid are shared through skin-to-skin contact. If an ulcer or open sore related to an STI is not completely covered, the STI can still be shared.
If a condom is uncomfortable, there are different sizes and types of condoms that can offer a better fit. Using the correct size is important, as condoms that are too small or tight might break, and condoms that are too big might slip off. Lubricants can help sex feel better for everyone.
Come into our office to pick up condoms and other safe sex items. We carry a variety of sizes and lubricants.
