My boyfriend took me to the pharmacy to get the morning after pill

Illustrated portrait of a woman.

I was off oral contraception as it was affecting my mental health quite badly and I was waiting for my appointment for the coil so I was unprotected.

My and my boyfriend were tipsy after going to our favourite bar and completely forgot about condoms and everything, so the next morning he took me to the pharmacy and helped me chat to the pharmacist about getting the morning after pill as I was quite nervous. It was super easy and no judgement at all! I’m glad I took it rather than taking the risk.
