May is Teen Pregnancy Awareness Month. Now, more than ever, it’s easy to share what you’ve learned about the subject with others thanks to social media. If you have a young woman in your life that is sexually active, helping her understand the different birth control options that exist prevents premature pregnancy. Since her body is still growing and developing as a teenager, she could experience complications if she were to get pregnant too soon.
Teen Pregnancies Can Cause Complications
Some teen pregnancies result in complications for both the mother and the child. A pregnancy is considered ‘high-risk’ if a young woman is still in her teens when she gets pregnant. Dr. Ahmadinia of OBGYN High Desert specializes in high-risk pregnancies and helps young women overcome odds so they can deliver happy, healthy babies.
Prevent Unplanned Pregnancies by Sharing What You’ve Learned
Raise awareness about teen pregnancy and ways to prevent unplanned pregnancies from occurring in young women. Your voice makes a difference by helping teenagers exercise their right to have intercourse without getting pregnant! Encourage the young people in your life to use birth control and contraceptives while they’re sexually active. That way, they can postpone pregnancy until they’re older and more ready to embrace the experience of parenthood.
