Here it goes…

I had to come off my usual pill as it was effecting with my mental health. Whilst I was having a “break” ready to trial a new one, I had sex.

I didn't regret it one bit, sometimes these things happen. I knew what could be done to stop anything becoming from this.

I went to the pharmacy where I spoke to the lady behind the counter, she was the nicest person ever and totally put me at ease.

I got taken into a private room and was asked some basic health questions. Next thing I knew I was giving a pharmacy bag which contained the morning after pill. Being able to take it at my own pace and in an environment I felt comfortable in, helped me so much!
