Contraceptive Options Available in Student Health
Contraception is now free for 17-26 yr olds
UCC Student Health is delighted to be part of the scheme to provide all forms of contraception free of charge to students who have a uterus and are
- living or expecting to live in Ireland for 12 months or more
This new development covers the cost of contraceptive consultations with our clinicians, the cost of the pill, morning after pill, bar, or intrauterine device, as well as insertion and removal of any device if you opt for a long acting reversible method of contraception. Free condoms are also available. When you are with us why not ask for a free STI check as well.
You will need to provide your PPS number at each consultation- many of our contraceptive consultations can be conducted remotely - via telephone or video consulatation and prescriptions can be transferred electroncially to a pharmacy participating in the scheme.
Many contraception consultations are by telephone or MS Teams - conveniently saving you the trip to the clinic.
