If a 14 year old was trying to get pregnant, and they never did, does that mean they can't because of age, or eggs? Or is it just really hard to get?

Hard & dangerous: Higher risk of potentially fatal (you or baby) toxemia of pregnancy, premature delivery, slight increase on down syndrome birth, all make pregnancy at 14-15 a bad idea. Even after a woman's body reaches full maturity (body+ brain at 22) it can take up to a year to get pregnant with a healthy system.

Probably: Check with obgyn, as every situation is different. In general, major essential dental work should be completed before planned medical procedures as to not leave problems unaddressed that could develop into pain and/or infection that could affect both mother and child.
