Sexual and Reproductive Health Services
Campus Health & Wellbeing provides information, evaluation and treatments regarding your sexual and reproductive health needs.
We see students for many different reasons. Whether it’s pelvic pain, trouble with your current birth control, a discharge, burning when you pee, rectal pain, irregular periods, erectile issues, relationship problems, yeast infections, bladder infections, STIs or anything else. We support you in any choice that you make, including being sexually active or choosing abstinence.
Please call or schedule online with one of our medical providers.

How to Access
- To ensure that you receive timely care, please call 805-756-1211 to schedule a Pregnancy Testing nurse visit.
- You can state your reason for visit as “Pregnancy Testing” or “Pregnancy Options” if you are not yet certain how you would like to proceed, or “Medication Abortion” if you have already decided you would like an abortion. If you walk in, you can choose "Pregnancy Testing and Nursing Services" or "Abortion Nursing Services" when you check in.
- Once a pregnancy is confirmed, your nurse can schedule an Options Consultation with a provider either on the same day or within 1-2 business days.
- Patients can expect to pay between $44 - $80 for this service, depending on certain medical conditions. This pricing is possible due to private grant funding and is subject to change in the future.

- Patients can expect to have two in-person appointments at the Health Center, plus follow up care
- The first appointment is a nurse visit to confirm the pregnancy with lab tests,

If you would feel more comfortable meeting confidentially with a Safer advocate before your medical appointment, please contact Safer or schedule on their appointment page first.

Being Educated is Sexy
A comprehensive, sex education canvas course for Cal Poly students, by Cal Poly students is now available. In this anonymous, self-guided course, you'll learn about the basics of sex and topics like pleasure, STIs, violence prevention, and resources available to students. Can't find answers to your sex questions? Ask them anonymously in the modules and get answers directly from student researchers. Contact the Sexual Health & Reproductive Health Lab with any questions: email@example.com or Dr. Roberts firstname.lastname@example.org the faculty member overseeing the lab.
Condoms and More!
- We are also working to make contraception products more readily available to students around campus. Students can access free latex and non-latex condoms, lubricant, and latex squares at the ground level of the Health Center (building 27) at the Wellbeing Services front desk.
- Turn your latex condom into a DIY dental dam. Transform a condom into a dental dam by cutting off the top and bottom, cutting down one side, and unfurling it. A condom as a dental dam remains impermeable against pathogens, however, you should be careful not to poke a hole anywhere in the condom while cutting it. Dental dams can be used for protection during oral sex by lying flat over the vaginal opening or anus. Similar to condoms, dental dams should be used once and disposed of in the trash.
