February is National Condom Month - Wear One!


The American Sexual Health Association recognizes each February as National #CondomMonth. The Ottawa County Department of Public Health provides free condoms at various locations throughout the county and state (click for a list of locations). Residents of Ottawa or Allegan County can also order condoms by mail here. Not having sex is the best way to keep from getting sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If you choose to be sexually active, correct and consistent use of condoms is one of the most effective ways to reduce your risk of STIs.


condoms by mail

"As we work to eliminate barriers to sexual health services in Allegan and Ottawa County, we launched a condoms-by-mail program to do just that. Now, people wanting to protect themselves from unplanned pregnancy and STIs have choices in where and how they get their condoms," said Heather Alberda, AASECT Certified Sexuality Educator with the Ottawa County Department of Public Health.
