If you are under 25 you can apply to be a part of the C-Card Scheme. As a member you have access to free condoms (external and internal), lubricant and oral/dental dams as well as lots of information and advice. All you need to do is pay a visit to the Student Welfare office to ask about the C-Card. Alternatively, you can find your nearest C-Card registration point.

Wherever you see the 3 in 1 logo you can access the following services at that site:

  • C-Card registration (condom scheme)

  • C-Card pickup for existing members

  • Pregnancy testing

  • Chlamydia screening

If you are under 18, the Young People's clinic in the Merrion Centre may be most suitable for you. It is a dedicated sexual health clinic for under 18s, open on Monday + Tuesday 3 - 5:30pm and Wednesday + Thursday 3.30 - 5.30pm.

Over 25? You are able to access condoms if you visit one of the Leeds Sexual Health Clinics. The Centre for Sexual Health is right in town, located on the first floor of the Merrion Centre, so really easy to get to. Have a look on the map here.

Emergency contraception

Emergency contraception can be taken up to 5 days after having unprotected sex. There are two types of emergency contraception; the oral emergency contraceptive pill which is available from your GP, a sexual health pharmacy or Leeds Sexual Health and the emergency coil which can only be fitted by a specially trained doctor or nurse. This may be available from your GP but is otherwise available from Leeds Sexual Health.


If there is any doubt that you may have had unprotected sex, it is better for you to speak to your GP or visit Leeds Sexual Health for the advice and information you need. If you wish to access emergency contraception, it is important to let the receptionist know what you need when you are booking an appointment, so that you are seen quicker.
