Teen pregnancy causes dramatic changes to a teen girl's lifestyle, emotional well-being and body. According to PregnancyCenters.org, some of the most long-lasting effects of teen pregnancy involve the emotional stress of planning for parenthood, or planning for adoption.
The only guaranteed method of avoiding teen pregnancy is abstinence. If a teen does decide to become sexually active, she should talk to her parents, physician, counselor or other mentor or health-care professional about available methods of birth control.
MTV's hit shows "16 and Pregnant" and "Teen Mom" have brought teenage-pregnancy awareness and prevention into mainstream popular culture.
