Typical story - Condom broke on a Friday night with my long term partner.

We have a son together already. We knew we didn’t want another. That weekend was a bank holiday so we went on the Monday to get the morning after pill.

We spent 45 quid on the 5 day after pill to make sure it would work. AND IT DIDNT. Both condom and morning after pill failed me. Unfortunately in Belfast I didn’t have many other options. The pill is not 100% either. Be safe and be prepared.
