I’ve felt quite judged every time I've used the morning after pill

I’ve had to take the morning after pill a few times this year within a relationship with one partner.
The first time I was quite nervous and a lady in the queue in front of me loudly pointed out ‘she’s got a form too, you might as well do us at the same time’.

I have felt quite judged every time since that I’ve used the morning after pill by both pharmacists and other customers. People have sex. And sometimes people have unprotected sex.I have to commend the Umbrella service provided by the pharmacy in Birmingham which made me feel very supported.

ellaOne® 30mg film-coated tablet contains ulipristal acetate and is indicated for emergency contraception within 120 hours (5 days) of unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. Always read the label.
