Teenage pregnancy

Teenage pregnancy known as adolescent pregnancy, is pregnancy in a female under the age of 20. Pregnancy can occur with sexual intercourse after the start of ovulation, which can be before the first menstrual period but occurs after the onset of periods. In well-nourished females, the first period takes place around the age of 12 or 13. Pregnant teenagers face many of the same pregnancy related issues as other women. There are additional concerns for those under the age of 15 as they are less to be physically developed to sustain a healthy pregnancy or to give birth. For girls aged 15–19, risks are associated more with socioeconomic factors than with the biological effects of age. Risks of low birth weight, premature labor and pre-eclampsia are connected to biological age, being observed in teen births after controlling for other risk factors. Teenage pregnancies are associated with social issues, including lower educational levels and poverty. Teenage pregnancy in developed countries is outside of marriage and is associated with a social stigma.

Teenage pregnancy in developing countries occurs within marriage and half are planned. However, in these societies, early pregnancy may combine with malnutrition and poor health care to cause medical problems; when used in combination, educational interventions and access to birth control can reduce unintended teenage pregnancies. In 2015 about 47 females per 1,000 had children well under the age of 20. Rates are lower in Asia. In the developing world about 2.5 million females under the age of 16 and 16 million females 15 to 19 year old have children each year. Another 3.9 million have abortions. It is more common in rural than urban areas. Worldwide, complications related to pregnancy are the most common cause of death among females 15 to 19 year old; the age of the mother is determined by the verified date when the pregnancy ends, not by the estimated date of conception. The statistics do not include pregnancies that began at age 19, but that ended on or after the woman's 20th birthday. Statistics on the mother's marital status are determined by whether she is married at the end of the pregnancy, not at the time of conception.

According to the United Nations Population Fund, "Pregnancies among girls less than 18 years of age have irreparable consequences. It violates the rights of girls, with life-threatening consequences in terms of sexual and reproductive health, poses high development costs for communities in perpetuating the cycle of poverty." Health consequences include not yet being physically ready for pregnancy and childbirth leading to complications and malnutrition as the majority of adolescents tend to come from lower-income households. The risk of maternal death for girls under age 15 in low and middle income countries is higher than for women in their twenties. Teenage pregnancy affects girls' education and income potential as many are forced to drop out of school which threatens future opportunities and economic prospects. Several studies have examined the socioeconomic and psychological impact of pregnancy and parenthood in teens. Life outcomes for teenage mothers and their children vary. Many solutions to counteract the more negative findings have been proposed.

Teenage parents who can rely on family and community support, social services and child-care support are more to continue their education and get higher paying jobs as they progress with their education. A holistic approach is required in order to address teenage pregnancy; this means not focusing on changing the behaviour of girls but addressing the underlying reasons of adolescent pregnancy such as poverty, gender inequality, social pressures and coercion. This approach should include "providing age-appropriate comprehensive sexuality education for all young people, investing in girls' education, preventing child marriage, sexual violence and coercion, building gender-equitable societies by empowering girls and engaging men and boys and ensuring adolescents' access to sexual and reproductive health information as well as services that welcome them and facilitate their choices". In the United States one third of high school students reported being sexually active. In 2011–2013, 79% of females reported using birth control.

Teenage pregnancy puts young women at risk for health issues, economic and financial issues. Being a young mother in a first world country can affect one's education. Teen mothers are more to drop out of high school. One study in 2001 found that women that gave birth during their teens completed secondary-level schooling 10–12% as and pursued post-secondary education 14–29% as as women who waited until age 30. Young motherhood in an industrialized country can affect social class. Teenage women who are pregnant or mothers are seven times more to commit suicide than other teenagers. According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, nearly 1 in 4 teen mothers will experience another pregnancy within two years of having their first. Pregnancy and giving birth increases the chance that these mothers will become high school dropouts and as many as half have to go on welfare. Many teen parents do not have the intellectual or emotional maturity, needed to provide for another life; these pregnancies are hidden for months resulting in a lack of adequate prenatal care and dangerous outcomes for the babies.

Factors that determine which mothers are more to have a spaced repeat birth include marriage and education: the likelihood decreases

Stipanovich averaged 12.0 points and 6.9 rebounds en route to earning NBA All-Rookie Team honors in 1983–84 under coach George Irvine.
