should I get the morning-after pill?

I had sex earlier and as he pulled out he realised the condom was broken, we're not sure if he came inside me because most went on the bed. I have only just come off my period but im young and my mum doesn't know anything about this. some of my friends have taken the morning after pill before and I know its fairly expensive but the guy I was with is willing to pay half and I can go tomorrow. I know I probably shouldn't risk it but im scared. should I tell my mum that I want to go on the pill so that this doesnt happen again? should I definitely get the morning after pill? what are the risks of getting pregnant?

Hi There,

It would be best to go down to your local contraceptive clinic or a local walk-in centre asap and chat through what's happened with a nurse, as they can use a pill call ellaOne up to 5 days after a condom splits and it will be free from a clinic. Do try and access help today, as you want to be left feeling scared, and the nurses are always so helpful.

Best Wishes



If you have any CACHE Pharmacies they will offer you the MAP after a consultation free of charge. You can get it free from the age of 16-25 I believe :)
