“I take the pill and I’d got to the end of my packet, had my week off and thought I had another packet at home, but I didn’t. My GP didn’t have any appointments for a week and they said they wouldn’t give me a repeat prescription as the doctor had to see me and told me to go to a walk-in clinic in South London. I got there about an hour after it opened but when I got there they said they didn’t have any appointments left and I had to go back the next day. I’d had sex a couple of days before so I spent the whole night in tears on the phone to my boyfriend worrying about getting pregnant. I work so I had to pretend I was sick so I could go to the clinic the next day and when I got there I waited about an hour to see someone but when I did it only took a few minutes to give me the pill. The clinic were really nice but the whole thing was a nightmare.”
