You can have coffee and take your lucky health messages in several places in Sofia, Stara Zagora and Ruse. ‘Sometimes it is not you that is wrong. But you are wrong when you do not love responsibly’ is the sentence that makes everyone thinking on his/her behavior and on the importance of taking care of our reproductive health.
