Hello Darlings, Since 2007, September 26 is also known as World Contraception Day! Its mission is to improve awareness of all contraceptive choices to ensure that regardless of whether you’re married, sexually active or not, individuals are making informed choices. It might not be fair for me to say, but in many aspects birth control fall under one of the many female responsibilities. I say this because we are the ones who have more options and various methods. The decision of family planning and protection is something to be taken incredibly seriously not only in an instance of pregnancy but also safety. So why am I speaking on the taboo topic of contraception?
As a woman, I believe that it is an important choice for every woman. I am also at an age where my friends have children or family planning which got me thinking. This led me to partnering with Bayer Inc. back in March to focus on the issues of women’s sexual and reproductive health and to share my own views on it. In our time where casual is the way and hook ups are the new form of dating, it is hard to ignore the harsh realities. It seems that in our careless and fun society the outcomes come with serious consequences. In fact a study focusing on world pregnancy trends found that half of all pregnancies in North America are unintended.
