Opinions On Teenage Pregnancy
Best advice: Is to not get pregnant. If pregnant then see an obstetrician and follow their guidelines to have a healthy baby! (I do not advise getting vaccines while pregnant, but that is your decision). Eat well, lots fresh fruits and veggies, do your best to stay calm and not get stressed and enjoy.See 1 more doctor answer
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Irresponsible behavi: Many teenagers cannot see the long-term consequences of their actions at the moment. Ignorance about how one gets pregnant is responsible for many of the pregnancies. A general feeling of "it won't happen to me "can also be put as responsible.See 1 more doctor answer
Problems: Teenage pregnancy's account for a growing proportion of pregnancies in the north east. It is a difficult time for the girl who is now a unready mother and a difficult environment for a baby to grow in. Not all teenage pregnancies tend to have a negative outcome. However, given the absence of a social, financial structure confounded by the absence of the father, it is a challenging time.See 1 more doctor answer
Teen pregnancy rates: Have been declining for the past twenty years, and the U.S. Teen birth rate was the lowest ever in 2010 (last data available). But the U.S. Rate is one of the highest among industrialized nations. Comprehensive sex education and easily available effective birth control lowers teen pregnancy rates. Abstinence-only programs do not work.
I think that: Teenage pregnancy impacts more on a teen's mental health than their physical health. Although they can conceive and carry a pregnancy 2 term, if followed by an ObGyn, most teens are not emotionally mature enough or prepared 2 B parents. Teens who decide 2 go ahead and have a baby need emotional support, financial and educational assistance 2 deal with parenthood.
Political question: Not strictly a medical question. Teenage pregnancy should not occur in the first place. If it does occur then they are stuck with it and a heavy responsibility falls on the unprepared shoulders of the adolescent parents and their families.

Disciplined: It is the job of parents and school to provide old fashioned discipline, not the pediatrician's job. It is all part of the decadence that is creeping into our culture.See 1 more doctor answer
Depression: Teens are at risk for pregnancy and postpartum depression. They often feel isolated from their friends and left out of social functions. They are also less likely to finish school or attend college than their non-pregnant friends. Teens are also more likely to experience mood swings from hormonal changes during pregnancy.See 1 more doctor answer
Not very effective.: Sort of like telling people not to eat or breathe. Sex is one of the major human needs and most people want to satisfy the need. There are some who will abstain but they seem to be the minority.
Depends on location: Most of the us has at least prenatal coverage through state health insurance. Be sure to check for this.
Political question: Right-to-life versus choice. Pregnancy must automatically be associated with responsibility that often follows a thoughless moment of pleasure. They have created a human life, whether they want the baby or not. Can they discard it at will?
Abstinence: This sounds too obvious but we are failing to teach our young that they need a sense of responsibility for fhe consequence of their actions. Unfortunately it is the lack of discipline in home and school, the seeds of ultimate decline in our culture! If it sounds old fashioned, it is the philosophy of the ages and still good.
Baby smokes/drinks: Cigarette smoke has been shown to reduce the eventual size of baby and accelerate the aging of the placenta, where it can reduce blood flow. The alcohol crosses into baby and turns into formaldehyde as it breaks down. It has a toxic effect on cells. Depending on the amount and timing it can produce birth defects and subtle forms of brain injury.It is likely the cause of some of the ADD/ADHD kids.
