She said that I would have to wait an hour to see the pharmacist

Illustrated portrait of a woman.

I got the morning after pill with my boyfriend after I got caught up in the moment on a Friday night.

What was really disappointing is that the lady at the counter pointed for me to go over and wait next to some seats and said that I would have to wait an hour for the pharmacist.

All of this was a whisper whilst I was perfectly happy talking at a normal volume when asking for it because I’m 27 and been with my boyfriend for 10 years. The stigma of women being responsible and trying to prevent a pregnancy is ridiculous! It’s 2019 why are we still being judged!
