It gave me peace of mind before my next period
I'm in a long-term long-distance relationship, so we use condoms instead of the contraceptive pill – for me it isn't worth taking a pill every day and dealing with any potential side effects that come with it.
There was an occasion where things got quite hot and heavy and we hadn’t noticed the condom split. I headed straight to the chemist the next morning to pick up the morning after pill. It gave me peace of mind before my next period.
What is #MyMorningAfter? It is a platform for people to share their experiences of taking the morning after pill. No matter why you are googling this, our stories are here to reassure you and show you that you are not alone. By sharing our stories, supporting each other and speaking openly about the morning after pill, we can stop women feeling isolated or ashamed by this experience.
If you have a story to share, and you feel comfortable doing so, please submit below and help us break the taboo and stamp out the stigma.
