You may pick up the following items twice per semester:

Wound Care Package

You may pick up the following items every two weeks

Condom Package

There are three options available in the condom packages.  They are; lubricated, non-lubricated, or 1/2 lubricated and 1/2 non-lubricated condoms.

Lubricant or Spermicidal Gel

The lube can be used as an additional source of lubrication during intercourse and has many benefits. It can ease penetration, increase pleasure and reduce the likelihood of condom breakage. This lubricant does not contain Non-Oxyonol 9, a sperm-killing agent, and does not provide any protection against pregnancy or sexually transmissible diseases.  Spermicidal jelly, that does contain a sperm-killing agent, is also available.  You may obtain only one product per visit.

Latex Barriers

This product is designed to be used for safer oral sex to the vagina or anus. It is a thin latex square that covers the genitals during oral stimulation to help prevent sexually transmissible diseases (STD's). You may choose from a variety of flavor scented latex barriers.
