I wasn't going to take the morning after pill at first

I’d been off the pill for a few days but me and my fiancé always used condoms as a backup.
The condom broke and I was worried that now the contraceptive pill was out of my system that I could become pregnant.

I didn’t know much about the morning after pill and I wasn’t going to take it at first, but then I rang the doctors who referred me to a local pharmacy. The pharmacist had a meeting with me in a private room; it felt a lot more comfortable than discussing it in front of everyone in the pharmacy at the time. She answered all my questions for me and was very helpful. I’m glad I took the morning after pill, you know, just in case.
