Latex condoms reduce the risk of pregnancy and have the added benefit of reducing risk for some
sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Condoms can be purchased in the restrooms of the Phoenix
Club in the Student Union and the unisex restrooms in the lower level of the Community Center at Resident Life area. For more information on
condoms, contact the Counseling and Health Center, SS 1400, (920) 465-2380.

Oral contraceptives ("the pill") are pills containing synthetic hormones that prevent pregnancy
primarily by blocking ovulation. Oral contraceptives do not protect
against STDs. The brands of oral
contraceptives presently available at the Counseling and Health Center are Apri, Orthocyclen, OrthoEvra, OrthoTricyclen and Triessa. An annual pelvic exam and pap smear are needed if you wish to be on oral contraceptives.
