I’m 18 and was with him for two years. We broke up over FaceTime in January.
But last month it was his 18th birthday.

He insisted I still went, so I did.
We ended up getting really drunk and sleeping together that night.

Neither of us had a condom but I did have the morning-after pill in my bag so I took that just before we got intimate.
Does it still work if you take it before?
