Have you really stopped to think how your life would be if
you were having a baby in your teens. There are so many girls that just give
themselves away, and they think they canít get pregnant. Wrong! You can, by not
using a condom and stopping birth control while having sexual intercourse.
There are very many consequences about having a baby in your teens. Some can
cause a life of you and your baby. Think before you have sex. Ask yourself ď Am
I really ready to give up my free time to take the responsibility of taking
care of a child.Ē
The most common types of reasons for teens to have a baby
are the following: they think the boyfriend/husband will stay, the baby will
show them love and affection, and that theyíll fit into their own age group.
Out of the three 90% of the time they are wrong. The husband thinks the woman
should take the full responsibility. People look at you as if youíre not a good
role model. Most of the time the baby is sleeping, crying, or eating.
Some other problems that can arise are health, finances, and
emotions. Itís very important to know that you and your other spouse are
healthy enough to have a child. A young girl should wait to have a baby because
sheís not fully developed herself. When the girl would be having the baby she
could have complications with her spine and pelvic area. Why would a girl want
to go through that miserable pain? Before, you start intercourse talk with your
doctor to see if you are healthy. The husband really needs to think about that
because it would be hard for him to see his wife and baby die.
Another thing was finance. Anyone knows that if you and your
spouse canít make it right now its sure not going to help to add a baby to the
picture. A baby costs a huge amount of money. When their sick you have to take
them to the doctor. You have to buy clothes, food, diapers and other
necessities the baby must have. Even if you thought you had enough income you
would probably go in debt when you brought the baby home. When a teen is
getting ready to have a baby she has to go on bed rest. Most of the time after
the baby is born the mother stays home and doesnít go back to work. The husband
might keep a job but it wouldnít be enough to support his family. Some mothers
get babysitters, but that doesnít work all the time.
The other problem about having a baby is emotions. Girls can
get pressured so much that they go ahead and have sex. Even though they
pressure you keep your piece of mind. If you have goals you want to make, then
the best thing for you to do is to wait on a baby. You and your spouse need to
set down and compromise. If one wants to have a baby and the other doesnít then
the best thing to do is wait until you both are ready.
Consequences can occur about having a baby. You can get
diseases, and problems for the baby. There are five or six different kinds of
diseases that you can catch. The most common oneís are STDís, AIDS, and
syphilis. Out of the three you can die from everyone e of them. STDís is
transmitted by sexual intercourse. AIDS is when itís transmitted from person to
person through sexual intercourse. Syphilis is a bacterium that enters the
blood stream. These diseases are very harmful. Problems for the baby can also
occur. They can have low birth weights and be premature. When a baby is
classified as low birth weight it means itís less than 5.5lds. Premature babies
are born before their due date. These things can cause a lot of problems for
the baby, as they get older.
I hope you will look at all the facts that can happen to a
girl if she has a baby in her teens. The best way not to get pregnant is
abstinence. You need to find that special someone before you just give yourself
away. Let it be someone that you think you will spend the rest of your life
