I went to the pharmacy on my lunch break
I’ve taken the morning after pill 3 or 4 times in my 20s.
One time the condom broke (I didn’t even think that was something that actually happened!), but the last time I took it, I just got carried away. No excuses, no alcohol, just really wanted to have sex with the guy and didn’t think about contraception. I felt the pharmacist was being judgemental and asked me: “I assume you weren’t forced?” Overall, my experiences have been ok, and I’m glad it is accessible in the UK.
