In medical terminology hives is usually spoken as urticaria as hive is a symptom of urticaria. Most people do not develop one hive when they have urticaria, hence the name hives.Hives are a kind of skin rash notable for dark red, raised, itchy bumps. Hives are most often caused by allergic reactions but there are many other causes too. For example, most cases of hives lasting less than six weeks (acute hives) are the result of an allergic trigger ...
The first limitation is that the trial is investigating a very sensitive topic in a low-income setting where adolescent pregnancy and childbearing is a major problem. The sensitivity of the topic has limited the scope of questions we could ask the study participants to avoid drop-outs from the main trial. We will therefore not be able to collect cost data about pregnancy care, delivery and management of birth complications directly from the trial participants. Instead we opted to collect only the incidence data for complications that are directly associated with adolescent pregnancy. Cost data will be collected from reference cases for the identified complications, which may or may not be part of the trial.. The second limitation is that evidence has shown that morbidity and mortality due to preterm and low birth-weight is a major burden to families and to health, education and social service systems [43-45]. Preterm and low-birth-weight infants are at high risk of re-hospitalization from ...
Over the past decade, the national teen birth rate has declined from 31 out of every 1,000 girls between 15-19 giving birth in 2011, compared to 61 girls per 1,000 in 1991.. From 2007-2011, the national teen birth rate declined by 25 percent with Hispanic teens experiencing the largest decline of 34 percent. In 2007, the Hispanic teen birth rate was 21 percent higher than the Black teen birth rate, in 2011 it was only 4 percent higher.. Dr. Howard Koh, assistant secretary for health at the Department of Health and Human Services, attributes these declines to stronger teen pregnancy prevention education and higher rates of contraception use among teens that have sex, but also the fact that many teens are deciding to delay sex altogether.. "We know that schools play an essential role in supporting adolescent health," Koh wrote in a blog post on Huffington Post.com "Research tells us that the longer children remain in school and engaged in learning, the better their life-long health.". Significant ...
Fracking the Bakken shale may be lowering teen pregnancy rates in North Dakota. Yes, shaking your head and saying Huh? is an appropriate response. But a study suggests that an influx of single young men to North Dakota actually contributes to a lower teen pregnancy rate. Slate writes: The explosion of fracking has created thousands of North Dakota jobs and imported single young men by the truckload to fill them. Thats helped the state perform better on two major indicators of teen pregnancy: Rates go down in places with low economic inequality and a high ratio of men to women. You might think there would be higher rates of teen pregnancy with more seed floating around, but research suggests that women are more likely to delay pregnancy when they perceive future opportunities to climb the social and economic ranks-to get an education, a job, and a committed partner who benefits from the same. By the numbers, the prospects for North…
Chapin Hall is conducting a quasi-experimental study to evaluate the implementation and impact of the Demoiselle 2 Femme (D2F) pregnancy prevention program. The program, which is based on the 3-D P.R.I.D.E. (Power, Respect, Intelligence, Desirable, and Endurance) curriculum, aims to delay the age at which adolescent girls become sexually active and to reduce their risk of pregnancy. The evaluation is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) as part of a Personal Responsibility Education Innovative Strategies (PREIS) demonstration project. Two cohorts of approximately 400 female high school students each will participate in the study. Three quarters of the study participants will be students in Chicago Public Schools; one quarter will be students in Bloom Township, one of Chicagos southern suburbs. Treatment school students will participate in the D2F pregnancy program. Comparison school students will participate in monthly motivational ...
Introduction. Teen Pregnancy Teen pregnancy is a very important issue, especially in the United States where approximately one million teenage girls become pregnant each year. Through public assistance, foster care, and child health care these pregnancies cost the U.S. at least $7 billion per year. About one third of girls in the U.S. will become pregnant before the age of 20, 8 in ten of these are unintended and 80% are to unmarried teens. There are many health risks not only for the teen but for the baby. One third of teen pregnancies end in abortion but those who choose to carry out their pregnancy run the risk of experiencing complications. This is mostly because teens are more likely to smoke, drink alcohol, take drugs, and eat unhealthily during their pregnancy. ...read more. Middle.

In 1996, the year before opposition to Planned Parenthood began, the average teen pregnancy rate in the 16 counties where Planned Parenthood operated facilities was 43.6 per 1,000 girls aged 13 to 17. By 2002, the rate had dropped to 28.6. In 2008, the year the last two Planned Parenthood facilities disaffiliated from PPFA, the teen pregnancy rate was 27.2. And in 2010, two years after the Texas Panhandle became Planned Parenthood-free, the teen pregnancy rate had fallen to 24.1 ...
LONDON (Reuters Life!) - Sex education classes will become compulsory for primary and secondary school children in England to help reduce Britains high rate of teenage pregnancies, the government is expected to announce on Thursday.The Daily Telegraph newspaper said Schools Minister Jim Knight will unveil the move when he publishes the findings of a review of sex and relationship education.Earlier this month, Knight told MPs that many young people had told the review they did not know enough to make safe and responsible choices about relationships and sexual health.Although teenage pregnancy rates have fallen 13 percent over the past 20 years, Knight said there is still further to go. Britain has the highest teenage pregnancy rate in Western Europe.I have received many strong representations for making personal, social and health education statutory in order to address the problem, he said.The government set itself a target in 1999 to half the teenage pregnancy rate by 2010.At present schools only
While you would have a difficult time finding anyone who would contend that teenagers are just not having enough sex (excepting a few teenagers who are probably left wanting) it is debatable what adults could/should do to curb some of the problems that arise from teen sex, namely teen pregnancy, venereal diseases, and sexual victimization. Many adults believe that abstinence-only education and an overhaul of what exists of the national sex education system as a means to address these issues in the most proactive manner possible. And there are legislators that are trying to, what else, legislate away the problems that arise from premature sexual activity among teens. But to be real, short of locking up your kids until they are 30, teens will continue to show interest in (what else?) sex.. Still, Tennessee enacted a pro-abstinence sex education law that is among the strictest in the nation and, due to its puritanical nature, has been dubbed the no holding-hands bill.

SACRAMENTO - Not only does California have the highest teen pregnancy rate in the country, it also has a rate of teen abortions exceeded only by Hawaii, according to a report by a reproductive health research group. The black teen rate has been falling, while the Hispanic rate has remained the same, said Stanley Henshaw, author of the report and deputy director of research for the Alan Guttmacher Institute in New York, which released state-by-state figures and other teen pregnancy statistics Thursday. The alarming state figures run counter to the national trend showing that reported sexual activity among teens has fallen for the first time in 25 years, according to a separate study released Thursday by the federal National Center for Health Statistics. [...] girls and women of all ages are more likely to use contraceptives during their first sexual experience.
WASHINGTON, D.C., SEPT. 26, 2001 (Zenit.org).- Religious teen-agers in the United States are less likely to have sex outside marriage even though few teens are influenced in their decision by clergy, a new study says. Four in 10 teens say religious and moral beliefs are what most influence their "decisions about whether to have sex," according to a survey by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. The survey was reported in the Washington Times.. But just 6% of teen-agers said ministers and rabbis had a big influence on these decisions. Half said their parents were "most influential" in these decisions.. After moral considerations and parental influence, the factors most influencing teen decisions on sex were worries about disease (17%) or pregnancy (15%).. Religious activity and parental influence combine to be the strongest factors in preventing teen pregnancy, said political scientist William Galston, chairman of the campaign´s task ...
Although teen pregnancy rates have declined in recent decades, the U.S. rate is still one of the highest in the developed world. By tracking the changing health care landscape and providing quality data and policy analysis, the Guttmacher Institute strives to shed light on U.S. teen pregnancy and on the social and economic factors that contribute to it. Guttmacher promotes policies and programs to enable teens to avoid unintended pregnancy.

Shows like Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant have helped make teen pregnancy a topic of national conversation. However, the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that the actual rate of teen pregnancies in the U.S. has declined to a record low.
The rate of teenage pregnancy in the United Kingdom is relatively high, when compared with other developed countries; the only other OECD developed countries with higher teenage pregnancy rates are the United States and New Zealand. The rate of teenage pregnancy is higher in more economically deprived areas. A report in 2002 found that around half of all conceptions to under-18s were concentrated among the 30% most deprived population, with only 14% occurring among the 30% least deprived. The number of resultant births is presently at the lowest rate since the mid-1950s. Also found was that the most deprived areas had higher proportions of conceptions leading to a maternity. The 2008 underage conception rate in England and Wales was 13% lower than in 1998. Over 60% of the conceptions led to a legal abortion, the highest proportion since conception statistics began in 1969. Other studies have shown similar findings. The Labour government elected in 1997 pledged to halve the number of conceptions ...

A £280 million Government plan to slash the number of teenage pregnancies is set to be a spectacular failure, according to official statistics released yesterday.. Although the rate has dipped, it is falling woefully short of the Governments stated target, and critics have called the Governments plan a "disaster".. In response, ministers have promised to refresh their policies, but many will see it as ploughing ahead with the same failed strategies.. The aim was to cut the teenage pregnancy rate by 50 per cent in the years between 1998 and 2010.. The Government relied on strategies of pushing sex education and contraception to teenagers.. But the pregnancy rate only dropped by 13.3 per cent over the ten years from 1998 to 2008 - and the real number of teenage conceptions may be masked by the easy availability of the morning-after pill.. Now the Government has promised a new plan, Teenage Pregnancy Strategy: Beyond 2010, which involves piloting one-on-one sexual health and contraception ...

Teenage Pregnancy. Awareness and contraception, teenage pregnancy statistics, options for the teenage pregnancy, pregnant teenagers support and information
Previous research has shown that teenagers support relationships with their mothers play a major role in their overall success. Higher levels of perceived social support during pregnancy and following the birth of a child have been associated with decreased postpartum depression and stress, higher parenting self-efficacy and satisfaction, and overall improved pregnancy and parenting outcomes among teenage mothers. The strongest influences on a teenage mothers successful adjustment during her transition to parenthood come first from her own mother, and next from her romantic partner. These support relationships may also play a key role in helping teenage mothers maintain contraceptive use over time and prevent repeat teenage pregnancy.. Consistent use of effective contraception is the best way to prevent unintended repeat pregnancy. Among teenage mothers, rates of contraceptive use tend to be highest immediately following a birth, but decrease significantly over time, placing teenage mothers at ...
In Ethiopia, pregnancy, and childbearing begin at an early age. Teenage pregnancy has long-term implications for girls, their families, and communities. However, multilevel predictors of teenage pregnancy are not well studied yet. Several studies are focused only on the effects of individual-level characteristics but ignored the community level effect. This, in turn, could result in biased estimation of predictors of teenage pregnancy. Therefore, this study aimed to identify the individual and community level factors that determine teenage pregnancy in Ethiopia. The data were extracted from the 2016 Ethiopian Demographic and Health Survey. The study included a sample from 645 clusters of 2679 (weighted) women aged 20-24 years. The data were collected using a two-stage cluster design that includes selection of enumeration areas as a first stage and selection of households as a second stage. A two-level mixed-effect logistic regression model was fitted to determine the individual and community level
A study in the city of Sakarya in Turkey determines that postnatal infant death rate is 2.5% in adolescent pregnancies and 0.1% adult pregnancies [26]. Malabarey, et al. [7] in their studies in the USA evaluate the effect of young maternal age on adverse obstetrical and neonatal outcomes. They stated that the rate of infant deaths in pregnant adolescents below 15 is 0.86%, and it is 0.41% in pregnant adolescents over 15. In another study conducted in the USA, the rate of neonatal mortality is reported as 7.3% between the ages of 10-15, 4.9% between the ages of 16-17 and 4.1% between the ages of 18-19, so, the younger the mothers are, the higher the rate of deaths is [27]. In a study conducted in India, it is stated that the rate of infant deaths earlier than 48 hours is 5.1% in adolescents and it is 1.7% in adults, which is significantly a high rate [15]. The increased neonatal mortality in infants born to teenage mothers might be mediated by low weight gain during pregnancy, preterm birth, ...
Prevalence rates of child marriage and early child-bearing have been declining across India over the past two decades, but absolute numbers remain high. This paper uses data collected from 3,000 children over 15 years in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana by Young Lives, a longitudinal study of childhood poverty, to provide an evidence base from which to strengthen policy and programming in this area.

Background: Adolescent pregnancy, while declining steadily over the last decade, continues to be an important issue for primary care providers. The 2005 national teen birth rate1 was 40.4/10002, while in Massachusetts it was 21.7/10003. In 2002 the Milford teen birth rate was 27.7/10004. Over 80% of adolescent pregnancies are unintended5, and present increased risk of morbidity and mortality to mother and child, including low birth weight, intra-uterine growth retardation, pre-term birth, peri-natal complications, and infant mortality6. Adolescent pregnancy is also associated with significant negative social outcomes. Adolescent mothers are less likely than their peers to receive a high school diploma, and are more likely to live in poverty and receive public assistance7. A child born to an adolescent mother is more likely to have health problems, developmental delays, and academic difficulties, as well as live in poverty and have a child in their teens8. Many risk factors are thought to contribute to
Our objectives were to (1) compare the risks for poor long-term mental health outcomes among indigenous women with and without a teenage pregnancy and (2) determine if community and cultural factors modify this risk. We conducted a secondary analysis of the 2012 Aboriginal Peoples Survey. Respondents were women aged 25 to 49 years who had given birth to at least one child. Teenage mothers (age at first birth 13 to 19 years; n=1330) were compared to adult mothers (age at first birth 20 years or older; n=2630). Mental health outcomes were psychological distress, mental health status, suicide ideation/attempt, and alcohol consumption. To address objective 1, we used binary logistic regression analyses before and after controlling for covariates. To address objective 2, we tested the significance of interaction terms between teenage pregnancy status and effect measure modifiers. In unadjusted analyses, teenage pregnancy was associated with increased risk for poor/fair mental health [odds ratio (OR) ...
The 2017 FSRH Guidance on Drug Interactions with Hormonal Contraception advises that women of reproductive age who are taking known teratogenic drugs or drugs with potential teratogenic effects should always be advised to use highly effective contraception both during treatment and for the recommended timeframe after discontinuation to avoid unplanned pregnancies.. Methods of contraception which are considered highly effective in this context include the long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) copper intrauterine device, levonorgestrel intrauterine system and progestogen-only implant as well as male and female sterilisation, all of which have a failure rate of less than 1% with typical use. Women using implants must not take any interacting drugs that could reduce contraceptive effectiveness. If pills, patches, vaginal rings or injectables are used then an additional barrier contraception, such as condoms, are advised and regular pregnancy testing, considered. Women should also seek ...

Teenage pregnancy is girl between the ages of 13 and 19, becoming pregnant. The term used in every day speech usually refers to girls who have not yet reached legal adulthood, which in Australia is anyone under the age of 18. At the national level, the teenage birth rate has declined in the last decade. The rate was about 16 babies per 1,000 women aged 15-19 years between 2011 and 2012 but this had fallen to 11.9 births per 1,000 women aged 15-19 in 2015, the lowest figure on record. Terminations can be performed up until the 12-week mark. About half of all teenage pregnancies are terminated in Australia. In 2015, the birth rate among teenage women in Australia was 11.9 births per 1,000 women. The rate has fallen from 55.5 births per 1,000 women in 1971, probably due to ease of access to effective contraception, rather than any decrease in sexual activity. The Australian Bureau of Statistics found that the median age to have a baby in Australia between 2003 and 2013 was 30.8 for mothers, and ...
Every day in developing countries, 20,000 girls under age 18 give birth. This amounts to 7.3 million births a year. And if all pregnancies are included, not just births, the number of adolescent pregnancies is much higher. When a girl becomes pregnant, her life can change radically. Her education may end and her job prospects diminish. She becomes more vulnerable to poverty and exclusion, and her health often suffers. Complications from pregnancy and childbirth are the leading cause of death among adolescent girls. Adolescent pregnancy is generally not the result of a deliberate choice - these girls often have little say over decisions affecting their lives. Rather, early pregnancy is a consequence of little or no access to school, information or health care. UNFPA works to address these issues by focusing on the protection and fulfilment of girls rights. This includes supporting comprehensive sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health care to help girls avoid pregnancy. UNFPA also

Nearly eight out of ten homeless and runaway young girls between the ages of 13 and 20 have given birth to at least one child. Social Bonds and Teen Pregnancy reports on a recent study of pregnant and parenting runaway and homeless girls found on American streets. Authors LaWanda Ravoira and Andrew Cherry examine the factors that shape these girls decisions and life experiences, including family, individual, and community bonds; religiosity; parental and individual attitudes toward premarital sex; tolerance for minor deviance; feelings of self-worth; and sense of power over ones own life. Contrary to prior research, which characterizes sexually active girls as dependent or victimized, this study suggests that girls who have had sexual intercourse before age sixteen are more mature and in control of their lives than their peers. Social Bond theory is used to provide a framework for thinking about the development of prevention and intervention programs for at-risk girls, as well as for the development
