Safe Sex: Contraceptive Options

Safe sex is an important health behavior to understand and to practice every time you have a sexual encounter. Learn about the available options you have for preventing pregnancy and lowering the risk of contracting STDs. One time unprotected can change the rest of your life. Be safe by choosing protection. Also, remember that sex should always be consensual without pressure, entitlement, intimidation or fear. Check out the Consent is Sexy campaign webpage!
