The three ages of modern womanhood: don't get pregnant, won't get pregnant... can't get pregnant…

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.
