Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Schools, principals and teachers: Our Navigating the Journey sexuality education resources are available for just $25 (that's half-price) for the school holidays. Our resource shop is closed for the duration of the lockdown but these e-resources are available for purchase.

Condoms are a type of contraception that stop sperm and STIs passing between sexual partners. A condom is a thin rubber barrier which is rolled on to the penis before sex.  

Condoms protect against sexually transmissible infections (STIs), as well as unintended pregnancy.

Condoms are used for vaginal, anal and oral sex.


You can get condoms from Family Planning. Our nurses can give you a prescription to take to the pharmacy. It will cost $5, no matter how many boxes you need (up to a limit of 12), plus your appointment fee. You might be able to talk with a nurse on the phone and get a prescription for condoms, without needing to come in to a clinic. 

You can also buy condoms from pharmacies, supermarkets, dairies, pubs, public toilets, petrol stations, nightclubs, sex shops and online, but it’s cheaper to get them on prescription from our clinics, a sexual health centre or a doctor. 

You are legally allowed to buy condoms at any age.

Internal condoms are also available from pharmacies and from our website.


They help protect against pregnancy and sexually transmissible infections (STIs), including HIV which can lead to AIDS. Condoms let men take some of the responsibility for safer sex and contraception.

How to use a CONDOM 

1. Check the condom pack to make sure the expiry date has not passed.

2. Open the packet carefully. Fingernails, rings, and teeth can tear the condom.

3. Make sure your penis does not touch your partner’s vagina, mouth or anus before being covered by a condom.

4. Check the condom is the right way up.

5. Pinch the tip of the condom to remove any air.

6. Roll the condom on the hard penis all the way down to the base. If it doesn't roll, it means you have the condom on the wrong way and you could expose your partner to pre-cum which can result in pregnancy and/or STIs. If this happens, make sure you get a new condom and start over again. 

7. Use water-based lube.

8. After cumming and when withdrawing hold the condom on the base of the penis so that no semen is spilt.

9. Wrap the used condom in tissue or toilet paper and put it in the rubbish.

10. Use a new condom and lube each time you have sex.
