Contraception refers to artificial methods to prevent pregnancies. There are various ways this is done – condoms, diaphragms, oral contraceptives, behavioural birth control methods and spermicides. Condoms are the most cost-effective, easily available contraceptives and also help prevent HIV-AIDS and other STDs. Because of cultural barriers, the sex education scenario in our country is abysmal and there’s a need to improve it to prevent early pregnancies. Early pregnancies aren’t only dangerous for the mothers but have a causal link with poor children’s development and infant mortality.
