No Husband? Sorry, No Birth Control.

Watching this video, you can’t help but think: is this for real? If your gyno told you there was a 6 to 8 hour wait, what would you do?

It sounds like a bad joke, but these situations are all too true for too many women around the world.

This video, from our friends at Pathfinder International, is one of our favorites for the relatable and humorous way it highlights the unbelievable barriers women in developing countries face when accessing family planning. It’s recently back in the spotlight thanks to this Upworthy post, and now it’s also our #MustWatch Video of the Week.

Each week in 2014, PAI staff will share a must-watch video that provides some reproductive health information you may not know, or tells a story in a fun or compelling way. And you can help us choose them. Got a video we just have to see? Leave your suggestions in the comments!
