I have taken the morning after pill four times over 15 years

Illustrated portrait of a woman.

I have taken the morning after pill 4 times over 15 years. ALL because of broken condoms. It happens, and it takes 2 to tango, so I bring my partner with me.

I used to feel awful picking it up, but no shame anymore! I have had a wonderful life full of opportunities because I didn’t have to deal with an unwanted pregnancy.
