In many places round the world it's taboo to talk openly about sex. this will make it difficult to access information and services around sexual and reproductive health, especially in places where religious or cultural beliefs restrict access to contraception or abortion. Good sexual and reproductive health means having a secure and fulfilling sex life, with the liberty to make a decision whether or not you would like to breed, and at what time in your life. Access to clear advice and knowledge on sexual health is crucial, as is having the ability to settle on from a variety of contraceptive options, without facing any stigma or discrimination. it's also important to possess access to maternal health services during pregnancy and childbirth, to make sure a secure pregnancy for both mother and child. for several women, a scarcity of access to those birth control services means they're unable to settle on once they have children, and the way many children they need. it's often the poorest who cannot access these services, and thus this lack of designing can have an enormous financial impact on women and their families. this will impact on their health, also because the health of their family. Consequences are often wide-ranging, from child malnutrition to the lack to send all children to high school. a scarcity of sexual and reproductive health services also can cause the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, like HIV.
