Alarming Teenage Pregrancy Rates

My work as an instructor allowed me to deal and work with students of varying backgrounds, age, academic programs and I could only feel disheartened when I have to see my very own students getting pregnant unexpectedly.

In a national advertisement, 4 out 5 youngsters are involved in pre - marital sex and with this rate, it is not unlikely that 1 or 2 can be pregnant.

Teenage pregnancy among 12 - 19 years of age poses biological and social problems since the physical structures of young women are not as mature as women in their 20's or 30's.

This unwanted issue can be attributed to poor educational levels of youngsters, poverty, and other personal issues.

But, while different countries have different ways to help teenagers deal with early pregnancy, I say, I can only hope that they can make through. It is then crucial that adults can find ways to help and guide our young mothers and fathers.
