I got caught up in the moment and had unprotected sex

Illustrated portrait of a woman. Written by Rebecca, 31, Nottingham

Mine is quite a straightforward story. I was 19 and got caught up in the moment with my new boyfriend and we had unprotected sex.

The next day, I went to a pharmacy in town, where I was given the morning after pill, at no cost. The pharmacist was lovely. No judgement or anything!

She also gave me some great advice on contraceptive choices that I hadn’t been made aware of before and the following month I had a coil fitted (the mirena I think it was called) after she had suggested it.

ellaOne® 30mg film-coated tablet contains ulipristal acetate and is indicated for emergency contraception within 120 hours (5 days) of unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. Always read the label.
