When you find out that you are pregnant (and you don’t want to be!), it is understandable if you get into a panic mode as the pregnancy is not something you planned for or even wanted in the first place! Even though you cannot change this fact, there’s always something
‘Pulling Out’ or the ‘Withdrawal Method’ is when the man withdraws his penis right before he is about to ejaculate in order to prevent pregnancy. It’s been around long before it had a name but it was just as unreliable and unsafe then, as it is now.
Whenever these words are spoken out loud, all we do is hush hush. While young Indians are open and forward in their outlook, there is still hesitation to talk about these issues. Have you ever thought why? Think now, what makes you not say out loud the things you feel?
India is all set to become the most populated country in the world in a few years and we all know how that has come to be, sex. Yet, the taboos related to sexual health, intimacy and relationships still prevail in the society. As a society, we Indians actively avoid
In the simplest of terms, birth control through contraceptive methods aims to prevent pregnancy. All forms of birth control (when used correctly that is!) prevent the sperm from reaching and fertilizing an egg, thus preventing pregnancy. Contraception helps you and your partner decide when you want to have kids. It
Emergency pills (EP), also known as morning-after pills or e-pills are here to save you. These pills are for emergencies and you can take them up to 72 hours after having unprotected sex to avoid getting pregnant. They are over-the-counter drugs which means you can buy them from a pharmacy
Even today, women across the world are denied access to medical abortion and are thus forced to resort to other ways of inducing it such as abortion pills and back door abortion clinic. MTV’s Nishedh Season 2 draws attention to the decision-making process and the social after-math of seeking an

Talking about sex is something that almost every Indian avoids. It makes us deeply uncomfortable because talking about an intimate and private act can be awkward. However, with the rise in STDs, unwanted pregnancies and dating culture, it has become important for us to talk about it openly. In an

You’ve probably heard the mantra- “Hum do Hamaare Do”. But not much is said about the middle years between the births of “hamaare do”. “Going with the flow” on this is not very wise!  Somewhere down the line, we also know that family planning involves a lot of thinking underneath the

Tuberculosis is a serious epidemic in India, but very few of us understand the importance of spreading awareness and initiating conversations around it. Consider this situation: What if one of your friends is suffering from TB? Yes, being around a person infected with TB can be risky, but is cutting
In 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) said in its report that India accounted for 27 per cent of the total number of Tuberculosis cases in the world! Tuberculosis, which is caused by a bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis, is a growing epidemic and yet, we don’t hear people talking about
Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by a bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis that affects our lungs.  The symptoms of getting TB are prolonged coughing, weight loss, night sweats and fever.

2020 hum sab ke liye ek bahut hi mushkil year raha hai. COVID 19 pandemic ne humein har tarah se challenge kiya hai, leaving us isolated from family and friends, and forcing us to adjust to a “new normal”, jo humne kabhi socha bhi nahi tha.

Annoying, right? Now, imagine, someone is watching you and reading along with you. How do you feel? Frustrated, right? As human beings, although we are social animals, we also want our space and privacy to be respected. In fact, we don’t just want it; we need it. But whenever someone talks
We’ve all been there! We’ve all had to talk about some really uncomfortable things with our family members at some or the other point. From our relationships to our sex life, very often we skip the conversation altogether to avoid the discomfort.
Remember those fights between Rahul and Anjali about who’s better? Patriarchy is just a grander version of this fight with a predetermined result: The Boys are harder, faster, better, stronger!   Patriarchy is like the software to our society’s hardware. It can’t be easily seen, even though it runs our lives in
If you’ve ever read a sex advice column you may remember those annoying questions about how to know if one’s wife is a virgin or not.  We all know some curious uncles and aunties whose radar gets activated the moment they see an unmarried woman hanging out with a guy
