Well, I just had every person who uses contraception's worst nightmare- contraception failure. It was actually more akin to "user error", but the end result- unprotected sex- was the same. The upside to all of this was that I was able to get my hands on some Plan B seven hours after failure, with very little hassle. The first drugstore I called- my local Walgreens- had it in stock, and the whole transaction took less than five minutes, and was totally hassle-free. That's no mean feat, considering I live in the highly conservative Kansas City metro area.
The moral of this story? Don't have sex at 3:00 AM when you are groggy and out of it. Having to rely on condoms can suck. Thank the Universe that Plan B is available as an over the counter drug, and fight like hell to keep it that way.
Oh, yeah. Wish me luck.
