EARLY TEEN PREGNANCY - Abiodun Lambaba Blog



Friday, 21 December 2018


The numbers of teenage pregnancy are very high but when you think about the numbers most could have been prevented with the use of protection. 

Some people may not afford condoms, but if you cannot afford a condom you can’t afford a baby. 

Children from homes run by teenage mothers go through a hard time in life. Teenage mothers have no time for other things; because they are busy taking care of their baby. 

Most teen mothers end up dropping out of school, because they do not have time for school anymore. 

They work for low wages to make money and support the child. Some teenagers try to stay in school to have a good image, so that other people in school do not look at them as a pregnant teenager but as just one of them. 

Most teens that have had sex wish they had waited longer and most teens to be given a strong message from society that they should not have sex until they are at least out of school. 

Other teens do what they have to do and give their full support to the child; they stay in school until close the tie of their baby’s delivery date. 

When teenagers plan to have intercourse, they should think about whether or not they could handle a child in their life. 

“Each year, women around the world experience 75 million unwanted pregnancies. 

Unwanted pregnancy can happen for two main reasons: either the couple was not using contraception, or the method they were using failed. 

There are many reasons why people do not use contraception to prevent unwanted pregnancy, including lack of access to family planning information and services; incest or rape; personal or religious beliefs; inadequate knowledge about the risks of pregnancy following unprotected sexual relations; and women have limited decision-making ability with regard to sexual relations and contractive use.” 

There are many reasons a women may not want to have a child at a particular time in her life.
