Having a baby is a very big decision in life and every family should take that decision when they are ready to. Until then there are many ways by which partners can stay safe and protected from an unplanned pregnancy.
For a woman to get pregnant, it is important to understand their menstrual cycle and know the days the body is fertile or not.
