At the Advice Centre, we offer lots of different freebies, including pads, tampons, condoms, and more. We also offer free pregnancy tests, however, this is something you will need to ask our team for. 

The Advice Centre is a judgment-free zone, so please do approach us to ask for a pregnancy test if you need one. When you ask for your pregnancy test, you do not need to give us your details or share any information you don’t want to. We are here to support you but it is completely up to you as to how much you interact with the advisor that gives you the test - you can simply take the test and leave, or we can offer you some advice if you feel this is something you would benefit from. 

If you have any concerns about your sexual health, there are a number of local services you can use: 

  • The Garden Clinic at Upton Hospital in Slough is a free, confidential, non-judgmental, integrated sexual health service. You can book an appointment via their online booking system. The clinic is 6.5 miles away from the Royal Holloway campus via the number 8 bus.
  • Strode’s Young People Clinic offers free and confidential contraceptive services and sexual health advice for people aged 25 and under. You can book an appointment by calling 01483 675 389. The clinic is located in Strode’s College on Egham High Street. 
  • Jay’s Pharmacy offers free Chlamydia and Gonorrhea test kits for people aged 13-25. There is no need to arrange an appointment or call ahead to collect these. If your test is positive they also provide the antibiotic treatment free of charge. The pharmacy is located on Egham High Street. 

The NHS website has lots more information on where you can get contraception, and on how you can order a discreetly delivered STI self-test kit.
