I got the morning after pill after a one night stand

Illustrated portrait of a woman.

I had a one night stand with someone I have always been very close to.

When I asked for a morning-after pill, I felt ridiculed by the pharmacist and I was so embarrassed, I felt it was a patronising way of dealing with things and it upset me. The price made my stomach churn, I’m trying to do the right thing and be careful but this is costing me? This makes me feel as though I’m being punished for something I shouldn’t.
