After my second baby our family was complete. On my 40th birthday my husband organised a surprise party. It was a great night. The next day I realised I’d forgotten to take a couple of my usual contraceptive pills that week and we’d had sex after the party.
I asked my sister what to do. She told me to get the morning-after pill from a pharmacist. After a short discussion I bought ellaOne®. While I was there I bought some condoms just in case.
Getting ellaOne® was very straightforward.
I had just started college. I had been with Paulo for a while. When his condom came off I was really worried that I’d get pregnant. I knew I wasn’t ready to have a baby.
I had read about emergency contraception on the internet.
I thought it would be easier to go to a pharmacist than get an appointment with the doctor. When I went in I was nervous, but the pharmacist was really nice. There were a few questions, but the whole experience was friendly and fuss-free.
I went to a café and read the leaflet in the pack.
Then I took ellaOne® and went to my next lecture. It felt like a weight was off my mind.
