yes because in teen pregnancys you could have more complacations during the pregnancy and the birth because a teens body is still improving and they are still having unprot…ected sex and they are not using protection Yess it is way different. As an adult you can enjoy it without being scared. As a teen you are more worried about yourself and your happiness. Having a kid as a teen is rough although plenty of teen moms do good and become sucessful in life but if you ask them if they would rather waited to have their child they would tell you yess.If your thinking of having a baby research EVERYTHING about pregnancy newborns child care insurance know your facts before you jump into it. Hopefully that will help you understand better and make the right choice.
Licensed professionals have mandatory reporting procedures which must be followed. An underage teen who discusses abortion with a counselor and does not want her parents to kn…ow may find she has no choice once the counselor is made aware of her intent to abort the unborn fetus.
It is much to personal a question to be generalized in to just one answer. There are many options for pregnant teens. You have to make the best decision for you and your futur…e baby. There are three obvious options . Keep the baby. . Give the Child up for adoption . Terminate the Pregnancy (abortion) All of these decisions are permanent and come with pros and cons. If you decide you are able to care for the baby, and want to keep him/her, you must be prepared to take on a ton of responsibility very quickly. Having a child at a young age is a very challenging thing, struggling from money, finding time for yourself, not knowing what to do when the baby gets sick... Children take more than just a hug and a kiss and a bottle of milk. they are a full time job. It's not like baby sitting, the little one's parent's never come home and pay you and let you leave. You are the mommy, and have to handle it, most of the time all on your own. If you have a supportive family, or any kind of relative who you are close to, they may offer help to you from time to time. If you are depending on Daddy sticking around to help, don't put too much hope into it. Although there are exceptions, most teen fathers abandon the mother and the child. The rewards of having a child are more than words can describe, children can show you so much about the world, about yourself. They see things from such a simpler angle. You learn to celebrate little successes and make light of the big mistakes. Children are a blessing, but that don't mean they are easy. Choosing to give your child up for adoption is a very difficult decision to make, especially if you are doing it alone. This should not just be a decision made based on what's best for mommy though, it needs to be made out of what option will make the best possible life for the baby. In California, you can safely leave your baby at any fire station or hospital, with no penalty, and no questions asked. So many couples are desperate to have children, and cannot. They can provide a loving home, and safe environment for your baby, that perhaps you yourself could not. Just be sure that if you decide this, you make clear the terms of the adoption up front. meaning that if you want to visit the baby, or want no contact with the baby at all, you let the adoptive parents know. The final option is to have an abortion. This means taking the fetus' life before it is born. This operation is legally only preformed in the first trimester. Many Religions object to this because it is, in many cases, stopping a beating heart. In California, a girl can legally get an abortion without her parents knowledge. You will have to live with it for the rest of your life. I personally do not condone abortion. Some young women feel like it is the only option though. The procedure is not free though, and if you plan on your parents not knowing, you must find some way to get the money on your own. In my opinion, you should always try to find some way to keep the child. I know adoptive parent s that are incredible mothers and fathers, but i believe that if there is any way it can happen, the baby should stay with it's natural born parents. Good luck with your situation.
The above answer is a bit harsh. It is not ideal to be pregnant while unmarried, but do not give up! You can always look forward to attempt marrying, but if that does not work… out.....Okay, whatever you do DO NOT GET AN ABORTION! Pray, and you know what, I am praying for you! You are not alone. *It depends on what your level of maturity is, who you are and what your life is like prior to being pregnant. Being PREGNANT does not ruin your life, necessarily. Neither does being a mother, regardless of whether or not you are married -- though if you're single, and don't have a very good support system between friends and family, it will be far more difficult for you. Most people, regardless of their age, can't carry the burden of motherhood all alone, especially not with a newborn -- it takes a lot of inner strength. You do not HAVE to drop out of school, nor does your significant other - there are many schools that are specifically for teen mothers. I graduated from one. In fact, were it not for my son giving me the motivation, I would likely never have graduated. SO TO SUM THAT UP: It depends on who you are. The answer would be different for every person. *It doesn't do anything necessarily, but it tests your maturity and everything you have. Being a teen isn't bad, only it isn't good if you haven't finished schooling. Once you are 15, your hormones explode and you are very prone to pregnancy if you aren't careful. Already, 4 people at my school, including me are pregnant and we are all younger than 18. *I had my daughter at 17, I graduated high school early, she has an amazing step father, and I'm in my 3rd year of college and doing great. Having a baby as a teenager DOSE NOT ruin your life, you don't have to drop out of school, of anything like that. Yes your body changes but it'll go back to normal if you take care of it the right way. I got stretch marks on my a$$ and boobs and you can't even see them anymore, because you put Palmers Coco Butter on it and within a year or so they dissappear. You muture a lot faster then others and your mood changes a lot too, but it doesn't last a long time. You just have to be calm and think of the wonderful little boy/girl you are bringing into this life.
well, lets just say the people at school will congradulate you for the child and then walk away whispering "whore.."
people will call u bad names and look down to u its terrible dont do it u'll always get made fun of and feel bad once it happens u'll definently regret it
you can manage teen pregnancy by not making out with a guy.
The amount of time, dedication and responsibility it takes for ateen to take care of a baby is overwhelming and the majority arenot able to make it alone. Teens should be able… to concentrate onthemselves and improving their own lives, and a child makes thatimpossible. Teens are not mature enough to care for someone elseand rarely have the resources to be able to care properly for boththeir child and themselves.
The main biological process is fairly similar between the two. There are some miniscule differences though, if I'm nog mistaken. It's only society that makes a distinction …between them.
Teen pregnancy change both a male and female teen... Pregnancy and birth can cause slot of stress and may cause you relationship with boyfriend or girlfriend to end. Pregnancy… is slot of work and you need to take care of the baby and yourself.... Watch 16 and pregnant ... That might help... Good luck :)
Education about teen pregnancy is vital in order to avoid it. Contraceptives should always be used in order to stop pregnancy unless the parents have a detailed life plan for …themselves and the child as well as sufficient financial means for both. This is usually not the case with teen parents, and so boys and girls should be educated in school about the trials and consequences of unplanned pregnancy. To answer your originally worded question however, its because its a huge life change!
1. don't have sex. 2. use a condom. 3. use birth control 4. become a lesbian.
Teen pregnacy is unwanted.there are so many more possibly educational things a girl could be doing than raising a child.How ever,even though a girl gets pregnany over the age …of 20,sometimes its not such a bd thing.In general there really is no difference.Girls have been pregnant and married at age 12 since nearly before shakspeare was alive.

teens already have enough hormones as it is and then getting pregnant that's waaaay more hormones raging out of control. and carrying around another little person is very stre…ssful. people judge you. If the father leaves then that's a heartbreak and a child who doesn't have a father. Plus the most stress comes from when you think about labor and raising the child whether or not u abort or give up for adoption. If the pregnant girl is your friend what are you supposed to say? that may be a little stress on the friend.
