    Completley forgot about using extra contraception when using the pill and taking antibiotics, and so after having unprotected sex i am now having a heartattack about it :|
    I take the Yasmin pill, religously. I have recently been put on Erytrimicin for a throat infection (sorry about the spelling :eek:) and forgot to use a back up form of contraception.
    Can I use the morning after pill and also, can i get this at chemists as I am under 16?
    I know i've been stupid, I just need advice as i'm normally really careful about this sort of stuff

    I may be wrong, but I think if you are under 17 you need a perscription for a morning after pill. Either way a sexual health clinic or your GP should be able to help and answer questions much better than TSR can.

    I'm not sure about the age thing, but if you can't get the MAP from a chemist then you can walk into A&E to get it instead. Hth x

    It's free to under 25's i think in Boots! Definitely free to under 16's...
    Thanks, I have got some peace of mind now
