One of the unending issues that need to be addressed is the teenage pregnancy. There are many causes of it and it is a widespread issue around the world. Even if there is much improvement in the society but still, teenage pregnancy is not addressed. That is because there are various reasons that teens are becoming pregnant. One of the reason is that their parents do not give them guidance. They do not explain the hardship they could undergo and the sacrifices they should make.
It is not just for the taking care of the baby but also of their own body. In poor countries, parents let their child marry at a young age so they have one less person to feed. The cycle just repeats as children of teenage mothers could also have the same fate marrying early. Because of the words that teenage get from their friends that they also result in becoming pregnant. This could also be related to drinking and partying then ending up pregnant.
Another reason is that teens do not know what would happen if they have sex. They would get pregnant even if it is their first time and even if they are young. They do not know the methods of contraception and they do not know how to protect themselves. They just seem to enjoy their life but ending up becoming pregnant. It is now a normal occurrence in some countries. Many women become pregnant at a young age and stay with parents waiting for support.
