I was in a long term relationship at a festival

I was in a long term relationship at a festival when the condom fell off. Being only 18 at the time I was highly paranoid about getting pregnant.

As the festival/gathering was a week long, and I didn’t drive at the time I was concerned how I would get to buy medication to prevent pregnancy in time.

I was very lucky to have a friend who’s older sister was driving to the nearest town the next day. She kindly offered to give me a lift to the nearest pharmacy to buy a morning after pill. While my boyfriend was kind enough to give me the money for the pill, he didn’t want to come with me to get it.
