The woman issuing the pill asked me if I’d had a one night stand

Illustrated portrait of a woman.

Written by Sophy Higgins, 22, Lincolnshire

This happened maybe last year, I had intercourse with my boyfriend on the Saturday and forgot to take my pill the Saturday night so on Sunday I went to get the morning after pill.

Everything was going well until the woman issuing the pill said to me, “was it a one night stand then?” I couldn’t believe what I was hearing, even if it was why should it matter? I then had to go on and explain that no I had been with my boyfriend for 3 years and I just forgot. I was so embarrassed and no one should ever have to feel like that.
