If you live in a country with good health care and access to healthy food etc no one is at risk. Teens can have a little bit higher risk because they don't always stick to eating healthy etc but that is individual.

Teen pregnancy can be a serious social issue. By definition it is when a single teenager becomes pregnant. Mere age is not the main challenge, since it was once not uncommon f…or people to marry in their teens and begin their families. However, in today's society it is very difficult to survive economically if you don't have a certain level of education or job skills. For this reason, when a teenaged girl becomes pregnant, both the young mother AND the young father can be trapped for life in a downward socio-economic cycle. Their potential for success, and that of the baby and any other children they may have, becomes seriously stunted. In addition, teens in general are usually not developmentally or psychologically ready to carry and care for a baby and this can contribute to many other difficult problems for their young family. For reasons such as these, teen pregnancy does not only affect the teens themselves (which is sad enough on its own) but also contributes to other social issues that affect the wider community.
High if you do it when you ovulate or have unprotected sex less than a week before you ovulate since sperms can live inside you for up to a week.
for a teenager to get pregnant is bad because most of the time the girl is not responsible enough to take care of the child, and was not responsible enough to make that kind o…f decision in the first place. if she didnt plan it, she shouldn't have spread her legs for him.whether protected or not there still going to be a possibility.i am a teenage girl. who wanted so badly and nothing more to have a baby. but i realized that my boyfriend isn't able to hold that decision, and neither am i. pregnant teenage girls need alot of money to support both herself and the baby and at a young age,and that's harder than it seems. i wouldn't want to have to have problems with feeding and supporting my baby. or stealing from stores to support the child. and i definitely wouldn't want to give my child up. but those are things you have to think of before getting pregnant. and lots more on top of that.
Teenage pregnancy these days are very common but that doesnt mean we should all practice it. The risk factors are as these listed ~You risk having your parents… lose trust in you and being upset. ~ Its against all religion unless if youre married during your teenage years. ~ The father of the child might not be able to support the child financially and to support you also. ~ You might get distracted during studies or your parents might have you drop out due to the situation ~ You might risk having people missjudge you as someone who is not morally educated and this might affect the way people think about you. ~ And in many cases teenages that get pregnant will choose to terminate the child rather than to keep, but abortion can lead to many health problems and also emotional problems. I say its better to keep yourself protected until you are ready for the choice of having a child with the right person in future and also when you are financially stable and preferably when you are married. Good luck xoxo
A research paper written about risks in teenage pregnancy can give teens something to think about before having sex. There are many risks one may not really be aware of an…d such a paper could touch on all those.
Nothing, just have sex with everyone!
Finances are affected by the person who is paying for the pregnancy. The teen father of the baby may have to quit school and get a full time job to support the baby. If the te…en has no money then it will affect the parents, who may have to take the mother and baby into their home and pay all the expenses. There are the expenses of pregnancy to be sure, doctor visits, prenatal vitamins, maternity clothes but the real expenses come after the baby is born. Food, clothing, diapers, car seats, strollers and so much more. If a teen doesn't have the financial means to care for the baby for 20 years, then it would be a wise idea to consider adoption.
Teenage pregnancy is when a teenager has sex with someone nd then gets pregnant at a really young age.
Teenage pregnancy affects their lives because they possibly may nit be able to finish high school & the statistics of teenage mothers / parents attending college & finishing i…t is very unlikely. Not only will it affect their education but also their child's life. Many children who are born to teenage mothers are very likely to be raised in very poor conditions & would not have the life that they should have had as if they were born when the mother was of age to handle the situation. Teenage pregnancies also prevent women from finding jobs & succeeding as independent people. Although, some teenage girls do fine on their own , it is very likely that they need support for their parents or others or do not do very well. To prevent teenage pregnancy condoms & birth control & other protection is highly recommended. If you or someone you know is in this situation , adoption may be the right choice.
Females between the ages of 13-19.
There are several risks to teenage pregnancy. Here are a few: H.I.V. and many other deadly/potentially deadly STD's that can be passed to your children.Higher risk of miscarr…iage due to the young age of teenagers.More risk to the mother's body, especially the younger the mother is.
They are pretty high if you do premarital sex, so, don't do it if you don't want the pregnancy!
not always. Sadly,, the teenager could have been raped, and therefore have no control over her getting pregnant. The teenager may be sexually active and not have planned for a… baby- which is more common. However, there are many teenagers who plan to become pregnant, and will do whatever it takes to fall pregnant.
dont get knocked up
60% drop out of high school and less than 2% have a college degree by the time they are 30. Doing homework with a baby that need attention is not possible. You have to have so…meone watching them. Not getting to sleep is another thing that makes it hard to concentrate in school and at home.
They're still in high school, and most don't have jobs.
