I got the morning after pill for the first time yesterday

Written by: Anonymous, 22, Glasgow

I got the morning after pill for the first time yesterday and I feel very lucky it was such a positive experience. I was terrified of judgement and was scared they would think I had just been foolish when in actual fact the condom broke (which has never happened to me before and I didn’t think it could happen!). The male pharmacist asked if I would rather see a woman and I said I didn’t mind and he was so lovely and not judgemental. I am so grateful to be living in this country and to have easy access to the morning after pill as I’m really not sure what I’d have done without it.
