Journalist, photographer and blogger Meg at Life in Lanka blog [1] reports that in remote Sri Lankan villages some women do not have a say in what type of contraception they use.

Their husbands were not keen on using condoms and preferred that their wives used contraception instead; so the inexpensive, easily available and quite effective condom for men was not an option, leaving contraception entirely up to the women.

Due to the fact that contraceptives for women usually have side effects their sufferings never end.
