3 Ways of Handling Teenage Pregnancy
For a teenager, finding out that she is pregnant can be an extremely
distressing and painful affair. Faced with such circumstances, a young
girl has a number of alternatives to opt for, with every choice coming
with it very own emotional baggage.
One of the rather painful options available, which pregnant teens
elect, is ending their pregnancy. Teens often submit to the
consequences of abortions in silence, usually all by themselves, as
they are mortified in discussing this decision with others. Elders
should ensure that an expectant teen is not forced into going in for an
abortion and, more importantly, that they are around to offer emotional
strength, if the teen chooses to end her pregnancy.
Abortion involves discontinuing the pregnancy prior to an unborn child
starting life outside the protection of the mother's womb. Abortions
can be unprompted and are known as miscarriage or they can be planned,
known as induced. Until 1973, the induced abortions were unlawful; when
dealing with the famous Roe vs. Wade case, the Supreme Court was
compelled to substantiate the woman's prerogative to select or end her
1. Abortions, which are considered far less dangerous and safer, are
carried out in the first three months of pregnancy, which is inside the
first twelve weeks as calculated from the most recent menstrual cycle.
There are many different kinds of abortion procedures, and the
particular kind that is done on a specific individual is based on how
late into her pregnancy she is.
2. Now, the initial sort of termination of teen pregnancy, or abortion
that could be performed is known as medical abortion, and can be
carried out inside the initial nine weeks of getting pregnant. Two
kinds of drugs are usually used, mifepristone (RU486) or, methotrexate
and after that a second drug known as misoprostol has to be taken.
In this kind of abortion, no surgery needs to be performed, but it
takes time to bear results, necessitating making numerous calls on the
physician or to the abortion clinic. It may sometimes involve quite
severe cramping as well as bleeding at home; without a doubt, the
combination of both these pills results in the uterus ejecting the
fetus. The failure rate of this process is about 10% and then the woman
has to look to the next chief option available, surgical abortion.
3. The most widely preferred kind of termination of teen pregnancy, or
abortion is the vacuum aspiration, a surgical procedure where the women
is administered anesthesia before the fetus is manually taken out from
her uterus. This is usually carried out within the first three months
In this abortion procedure, the cervix is slowly dilated nearly a
quarter-inch. A thin tube is inserted from the vagina, passing through
the cervix, and into the uterus. The uterine lining's contents are at
that point vacuumed out. The procedure is completed within a couple of
minutes and usually the woman goes home that very day.
Just as is the case with all pregnancies, the teenage pregnancy
abortion during the second trimester (starting in the thirteenth week
of pregnancy) is quite uncommon, although they certainly happen;
prostaglandin is administered in a treatment center resulting in the
contraction of the uterus, which usually continues for more than a few
hours. After the twenty-fourth week or during the final three months of
pregnancy, abortions are carried out only in the case of the fetus
being seriously deformed or the life of the mother is at great risk.
