Sexual health and contraception

At all YC Hertfordshire One Stop Shops you can get sexual health information, support and advice. The service is free and confidential and includes:

  • Free condoms through the c-card Hertfordshire scheme
  • Free chlamydia testing
  • Free pregnancy testing
  • Emergency contraception - provided by PCT Mondays and Thursdays 3.30– 4.30pm only

What is the c-card Hertfordshire scheme?


c-card Hertfordshire is a sexual health scheme for young people aged 13-25 that aims to help you:

  • Make the right CHOICES regarding relationships
  • Get free CONDOMS to prevent unplanned pregnancies and reduce sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Get tested for CHLAMYDIA and other STIs
  • Understand the types of CONTRACEPTION available

When you register with this scheme you will be issued with a card which contains a unique ID number. You will then be able to use this to pick up free condoms from any registration or easy access point in Hertfordshire where you see the c-card logo.

The YC Hertfordshire Cheshunt One Stop Shop is a c-card registration and easy access (distribution) point.

Visit the c-card Hertfordshire website for more detailed information.
