They wouldn’t allow my boyfriend to come with me

The condom broke after my second time having sex with my boyfriend. We went straight to our local sexual health clinic. We had been told about the local sexual health clinic by our school, so we knew exactly where to go and what to do.

I had a consultation but still felt unwanted in the clinic as they wouldn’t allow my boyfriend to come in with me. He was sat in the waiting room while I anxiously spoke to the nurse. Although I was responsible, I felt I was treated as a child, split from my boyfriend in a situation that involved us both.
