Write a short paragraph about teenage pregnancy and make sure to consider organization, coherence and cohesion, and language use.
Teenage pregnancy is a prevalent problem in many societies around the globe. Various factors contribute to unintended pregnancies among adolescent girls. Many adolescents encounter barriers such as restrictive laws limiting contraceptive use, health workers bias and financial constraints among others in accessing contraception. Young girls may unintentionally become pregnant due to knowledge gaps and misconceptions around contraception. Moreover, they often lack the autonomy to ensure precise use of a contraceptive. Another cause is sexual violence, which is widespread among teenage girls. Teenage pregnancies have both social and health impacts for adolescent mothers and their babies. Socially, pregnant adolescents may face societal stigma and rejection and the risk of dropping their education. In regard to health, early childbearing among adolescents exposes young mothers and their newborns to higher health risks such as eclampsia, systemic infections, preterm delivery, low birth weight and neonatal conditions.
