Dealing With Teen Pregnancy

Teen pregnancy is a traumatic and difficult issue a young person might experience interrupting school or college life and jeopardizing so many other plans. It creates feelings of fear and shame and the teenager goes through an emotional crisis. You may be faced with enormous stress and may feel that you are going to crumble under the pressure. You might feel that there is none to help and will blame you solely for your pregnancy.

You cannot deny the pregnancy nor can you ignore which will only make the problems bigger and worse for you and your growing foetus.You will only be losing valuable time by not seeking prenatal care and counseling. You definitely need to make a choice depending on your circumstances.

Teenage girls may become pregnant due to many different circumstances. Pregnant teens usually have to make changes to their lifestyle in order to have a healthy pregnancy.They may have to give up alcohol and smoking and restrict eating junk food which is a prerogative of all teens. Teen pregnancy can instill many different emotions inside a teenager such as confusion, anger, frustration and fear.

Teen pregnancy can also be hard on the father of the baby. It can strain his relationship with his parents and his girl friend. The teen parents are suddenly entrusted with adult responsibilities like being financially responsible for the child until its 18th birthday.

If you want to avoid teen pregnancy you need to make wise choices like relying on reliable birth control methods or seeking knowledge about reproductive issues. If you do become pregnant and decide to keep the baby, you need to seek early prenatal attention and resort to nutritional food to ensure that the pregnancy is healthy and safe for both the mother and unborn baby.

Well written !

But why to indulge in such a situation ! In such a traumatic situation rather?

Best way to deal with teenage pregnancy is not to get into it ! thats the only way to play safe and have a wondeful living :)

Teenage pregnancy is much beyond having pleasure, taking chances and enjoying !

Its much beyond the emotions attacthed to it !

So wait for the right time to get into it ! and you ll surely treasure these best moments of life later on when you grow old :)

Although this writer has compassion for this subject, there are many erroneous assumptions.

Teen pregnancy does not interrupt high school because 50% of all teen moms drop out before they get pregnant. Of the remaining 50%, roughly 33% will drop out afterwards, and the remaining will stay and get a diploma or GED.

It seldom interrupts college because only 2% of teen moms go to college, and if you are in college, you are an adult and more likely to have an abortion.

Although they have to eat properly, and shouldn't drink, thats the least of their worries. Most teen moms have been sexually abused (66-80%), come from poverty (80%), violent homes (58%), and they all follow the adult birth rate.

Its not hard on the father at all- 85% leave the girl to fend for herself. And he's not a teen- he's an adult, average age 21.5

It has nothing to do with birth control, or even sex. Its an adult problem, not a teen problem. Teens are pushed into social corners, by adults, and pregnancy is one of the responses.

Dear Rick Machado !

Its very grateful of you to point out such instances whereby a teen or as you said a pregnant lady is violated or in other words the day to day problems which she faces !

Thats why I emphasized on the fact that the best way to deal with teenage pregnancy is to simply avoid it in all possible manners ! STAY AWAY !

Only a girl or a lady can understand the pain which a pregnant lady goes through ! Guys indeed have a little to say in this matter but A LOT to do in the same !

It does somewhere relate with birth control and sex but indirectly ! Its only after sex that a lady becomes pregnant right? Plus it directly influences the birth control measures which can be adopted in order to fall away from the same !

I still rest upon my belief that the best way to fight teen pregnancy or even adult pregnancy is to simply stay away from it !

I still appreciate your efforts of pinning down the major problems a teen/female goes through :)

Hey !

I am back just to share a quote which I recently found on the internet !

"Just say 'no' prevents teenage pregnancy just like the way 'Have a nice day' cures chronic depression."

I think this further explains my point pretty well :)

Hope you got the essence behind the issue :)

cheers !
