Free Christmas condoms

It's coming up to Christmas again and everyone is starting to think about parties and having fun. As you get into the festive spirit, inhibitions can melt away and you may find yourself in a clinch that goes beyond a mere kiss under the mistletoe!

Every year in January and February Marie Stopes International (MSI) sees a rise in the number of women with unplanned pregnancy. National statistics support this with the highest numbers of abortions taking place in the first quarter of the year.

This year MSI is urging everyone to wrap up for Christmas and is providing free condoms through a special text service which is being promoted 'up in lights' on the world famous Piccadilly Circus screens.

Remember condoms are the only method of contraception that can help prevent unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.

So if you are partying this year plan ahead, pack a condom and always play safe.

How to get your free Christmas condoms

The campaign runs from 8th December up until Christmas or until stocks last.
To apply for your free condoms, text safesex plus your name and address to 86122.
