Soap Opera Baby..

A certain friend and I were recently discussing several vastly popular hindi soaps (atleast she said they were several.. they all look the same to me..) and we were rather stumped as to how it is that the women in those soaps are almost perpetually pregnant, since every bedroom scene shows them asleep 6 feet away from their husbands in heavy Kanjivaram sarees with enough jewellery on to put Bappida to shame..
And have none of these people ever heard of contraceptives? or the morning after pill (since most of these things seem to happen unexpectedly on rainy nights while taking shelter in barns)?
I'm stumped.. somebody enlighten me please..
