Pregnancy is inevitable for Sri Lankan males in lower middle and above income groups. Particularly when they pass their late twenties. No offspring is in involved. Pregnancy spans (baring a radical change in diet and exercise) the male’s life time. It is not necessarily fatal but will contribute to the inconvenient health complications.

Till then why not answer a simple 1 question survey.
