ellaOne - Roisin's Story
The success of ellaOne. A case study on the morning after pill
‘I had just started college. I had been with Niall 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 discrete.
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 off my mind.’
