I don’t think women think about being judged for taking the morning after pill until they’re lining up to get it

I’ve only taken the morning after pill twice, both times because of a broken condom. I got them both from Boots and I was super nervous about it.

I can’t remember how old I was but I think I was about 20. I was really afraid it would make me nauseous but I didn’t experience any side effects at all.

I don’t think women think about being judged for taking the morning after pill until they’re lining up to get it. Hopefully I won’t have to take it again because I have the implant now, but obviously I would if I needed to.
