Women in early adulthood are in control of their reproductive health, personal and working lives. But the concerns of today are beginning to focus not only on failed contraception/family planning but recognition that family planning to many women, really means anti-family planning leading to worrying delays in starting to have children.
All young women should read this post ! You need to pay a price for all decisions you take - and a woman's biological clock does not have an alarm on it, unfortunately.
The irony is that the introduction of modern contraception, which was hailed as a major advance for women because it allowed them to safely postpone childbearing, has become a major stimulus for the boom in the fertility industry 20 years later. This is a grim example of the law of unintended consequences in action.
