The whole purchase process made me feel nervous

Illustrated portrait of a woman.

I’ve taken the morning after pill twice in my life, both times when I was in a long term relationship.

The first time was due to the condom splitting, the second time because we didn’t use protection. The whole purchase process made me feel nervous, but the pharmacist on both occasions was really helpful and understanding. I’d never begrudge or judge anyone for making a decision for themselves.

It says a lot about society today that women still get judged for making decisions about their own bodies.
