He said it was my problem because I should have been on the pill

Illustrated portrait of a woman.

The story starts with friends with benefits and a condom split. He said it was my problem to deal with because I should have been on the pill.

I called my mum and we went to a pharmacy together. Let me just say that he was not very helpful. He looked down his nose at me, and he went to see whether they had the morning after pill, which they didn’t even have. It made me feel really bad, but my mum and I went to another pharmacy up the road.

The experience was completely different. I got the morning after pill and the pharmacist was really helpful and I didn’t feel judged at all. It doesn’t stop you from feeling bad for taking it but it was my choice, so having people judge me only made me feel worse.
