What cause it by getting in teen pregney? It cause by having sex, and by wanting to have a baby. Having kids in your teen age years are going to be hard to do when you go to school and taking care of you and the baby. It seems teen pregnancy has become more accepted. SUFFICE TO SAY, the rising American teen birth rate in 2006 is something of an eye-opener. Between 1991 and 2005, the United States saw a 34 per cent decrease in the birth rate among those aged 15 to 19. But in 2006, that relatively steady decline was reversed. Suddenly, among 15- to 17-year-olds, the rate was up three per cent to 22 babies per 1,000 females, and 18- and 19-year-olds jumped four per cent to 73 births for every 1,000. To prevent teen pregnancy, should students be taught only the merits of abstaining from sex? Or should they also learn about contraception, just in case? Believers on both sides are facing off again, after a government announcement in early December that teen birthrates rose 3 percent last year following a 14-year decline. Some public-health experts blame increasingly popular sex-ed programs that preach abstinence only and keep kids in the dark about other pregnancy-prevention methods: A study published recently in the American Journal of Public Health attributed most of the 14-year birthrate drop to wider contraceptive use. “Abstinence-only programs are ideology
driven,” Even with more schools teaching the benefits of abstinence, she says, most still emphasize contraceptive techniques over waiting. Huber believes the purist approach is bound to lead to less sex among teens. Clear messages about sexual behavior. While adults in the other countries strongly encourage teens to wait until they have established themselves before having children, they are generally more accepting than American adults of teens having sex.

Reasons Given for Not Delaying Sex
A number of studies report that both sexes consider social pressure the major factor in engaging in early sexual activity. Peer pressure and a belief that “everyone is doing it” are often cited as explanations. However, in “Adolescent Girls’ Perceptions of the Timing of Their Sexual Initiation: ‘Too Young’ or ‘Just Right’?” (Journal of Adolescent Health, May 2004), Sian Cotton et al. of the Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, indicate that most female adolescents (78% of the studied group) felt that they had been “too young” at their first sexual experience. According to this cautionary tale, teenage love is perilous because young teens are innocent of the power and potential of sex. A girl gets into trouble because she lacks the knowledge and skills to manage her sexuality and to avoid pregnancy. And she is innocent because parents, teachers, and religious leaders have kept her in the dark.

Teenage pregnancy is defined as a teenage or underage girl (usually within the ages of 13-17) becoming pregnant. The term in everyday speech usually refers to women who have not reached legal adulthood, which varies across the world, who become pregnant.
The average age of menarche (first menstrual period) in the United States is 12.5 years old, though this figure varies by ethnicity and weight, and first ovulation occurs only irregularly until after this. The average age of menarche has been declining and is continuing to do so. Whether fertility leads to early pregnancy depends on a number of factors, both societal and personal. Worldwide, rates of teenage pregnancy range from 143 per 1000 in some sub-Saharan African countries to 2.9 per 1000 in South Korea.
Pregnant teenagers face many of the same obstetrics issues as women in their 20s and 30s. However, there are additional medical concerns for younger mothers, particularly those under 15 and those living in developing countries. For mothers between 15 and 19, age in itself is not a risk factor, but additional risks may be associated with socioeconomic factors.
Data supporting teenage pregnancy as a social issues in developed countries include lower educational levels, higher rates of poverty, and other poorer “life outcomes” in children of teenage mothers. Teenage pregnancy in developed countries is usually outside of marriage, and carries a social stigma in many communities and cultures. For these reasons, there have been many studies and campaigns which attempt to uncover the causes and limit the numbers of teenage pregnancies. In other countries and cultures, particularly in the developing world, teenage pregnancy is usually within marriage and does not involve a social stigma.
Among OECD developed countries, the United States and United Kingdom have the highest level of teenage pregnancy, while Japan and South Korea have the lowest.
Few teenagers have the experience or resources it takes to start a family. But that doesn’t keep them from doing so. According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, each year about 900,000 teenage girls become pregnant. The rate of pregnancy among American teenagers has dropped steadily in recent years, but it’s still tops among industrialized nations.
While some teenagers make great parents, many others struggle with the staggering task of raising a child at such a young age. Trouble comes in many shapes: poverty and loneliness, health problems for the mother and baby, missed opportunities for a good education, and sadness and resentment at missing out on proms and other exciting teen activities, just to name a few.
What are the health problems associated with teen pregnancy?
According to the March of Dimes, pregnant teenagers are especially vulnerable to complications, such as high blood pressure, anemia, and, most troubling, premature delivery. Their babies are more likely to be too small at birth and often have underdeveloped lungs, vision problems, or a host of other ailments.
Most of these problems could be prevented. As reported by the March of Dimes, teenage girls are usually biologically ready to have healthy babies. If they receive proper prenatal care, get a healthy diet, and stay away from cigarettes and alcohol, they have an excellent chance for a healthy pregnancy. Unfortunately, many girls fail to take these basic steps.
What are the lasting consequences of teenage pregnancy?
In many cases, teenage pregnancy isn’t just a temporary inconvenience. It’s a setback that can affect the lives of the parents and the child for many years to come. For one thing, an early pregnancy can keep a woman — and sometimes the father — from getting a good education. As reported by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, only 41 percent of mothers who have children before the age of 18 ever complete high school. Unqualified for a good-paying job, the mothers have a very hard time making ends meet. Almost half of all teenage mothers go on welfare within five years.
The children of teenage mothers are also at a distinct disadvantage. According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, they are 50 percent more likely to repeat a grade and are also less likely to finish high school. The sons of teenage mothers are more likely than sons of older moms to do a stint in prison, and daughters are more likely to become teenage mothers themselves.
Why do so many teenagers become pregnant?
Most teenage pregnancies can be chalked up to carelessness. According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, about 80 percent of teen pregnancies are unplanned. That still leaves 180,000 young girls who get pregnant on purpose. As stated by human sexuality expert Andrea Parrot in a Cornell University press release, “Many teenage pregnancies aren’t accidental but intentional because of girls who see no life goals other than being a mother as realistically within their reach. ” For these girls, a simple sex education class or abstinence lecture probably won’t be enough to keep them from becoming pregnant before they are truly ready.
What can be done to lower the rates of teen pregnancy?
Sex education classes, easy access to contraceptives, and personal choices to remain abstinent all play a role in preventing teenagers from becoming pregnant. But according to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, parents of teenagers may be the most valuable resource of all. When parents talk openly with their children about sexuality and responsibility starting at a young age, the children are less likely to rush ahead into parenthood.
What about the fathers?
For many years, reproductive policy in the United States focused only on females, something that almost everyone now acknowledges was a mistake.
“Why males were ever excluded from the way we think about pregnancy prevention is puzzling,” write the authors of the recent report Involving Males in Preventing Teen Pregnancy. “Sexual behavior involves two partners.” Relegating fertility and family to the world of women, the authors write, “has kept us from acknowledging what should have been obvious — that males must be involved in any policy solution to unintended pregnancies among teenagers.”
The report continues that it is well known that adolescent boys initiate sex earlier than girls. But “contrary to stereotypes about males’ disregard for contraception,” the authors say, overwhelming evidence shows that for many years teenage boys have played a key role in providing contraception. In addition, this pattern has improved over the last two decades: between 1979 and 1988 condom use doubled, and since then this trend has increased. These shifts in behavior, the researchers conclude, suggests that pregnancy prevention efforts that include young men are crucial and “will not necessarily fall on deaf ears.”
Finally, when parents explain the risks of early sex and the realities of raising children, their kids will listen. In the end, the facts are clear: A family is worth the wait.
