Problems Associated With Teen PregnancyWritten by Charlene J. Nuble
Pregnancy is one of pivotal moments of a woman's life but not when you’re young with a bright future ahead. Teen pregnancy is one of most difficult experiences any young woman can go through. The stress of pregnancy, revelation of pregnancy to parents, and moving on despite shame and worry can be nerve-racking. Indeed pregnancy especially during teenhood will never be easy.
According to studies, teenage pregnancies in United States have decreased steadily over years. In 1991, there were 60 out of 1000 young women who gave birth and in 1998, 51 out of 1000 gave birth. This decrease may be due to effective use of birth control and decreased sexual activity among teens.
Yet teen pregnancy rates remain high. According to Women’s Health Channel, in United States alone, approximately 1 million teenage girls experience pregnancy every year. At least 5% of young girls give birth and in 1997, at least 13% of births in US are of teenage girls. ?? Health risks to baby and children out of teen pregnancy are more likely to experience health, social, and emotional problems. An increased risk for complications such as premature labor in teen pregnancy and socioeconomic consequences are present.
But there are more serious problems for teenage mothers-to-be than statistics and how world views them either negatively or positively. Both baby and mother are at risk in major areas of life such as school failure, poverty, and physical or mental illness.
