Teenage Pregnancy and Pre-marital sex
Author: Teapot

The continuous search for love and contentment gives us the idea that if we're in a relationship, we instantly get these things but no we don't. The love we are looking for, the attention we seek, the contentment we keep on searching for can not be found in another person. Why is it that we look for love? Why is it that we crave for attention? Because we don't get them from the people who are supposed to be giving it to us and that is our families or whoever matters to us the most. A lot of teenagers feel so unloved, feel so ignored in their own homes that they've decided to look for it outside of their homes.

We find a partner yet it is not yet enough. Here's the thing, love is always enough. Enough to forgive, enough to understand, enough to trust, enough to change a person. Yet why are we hurrying? We all know that sex is supposed to be after marriage yet if love is enough wait, why can't we? Is the love not enough? Pre-marital sex, and then when the girl gets pregnant the guy suddenly disappears, the relationship collapses and we end up with nothing but regrets. Now, can you still call that love? There is a right person out there for you and you should know that. Here's the thing, if you are aware that the right is out there and you believe that someday, somehow you two will meet, you will reserve yourself because we don't want the right person to receive what is left of us.

Abortion remains one of the most debated issues today.
The hand of God subtitled a journey from death to life by the abortion doctor who changes his mind that discovers the wonders of life happening inside the womb and comes to appreciate the unborn human being. Nathanson devotes the first several chapters to the story of his family, especially of his father whose strict and authoritarian ways pushed him to become a medical doctor and contributed to the suicide of his sister. He recounts how his father's coldness sees him to procure and abortion for his pregnant girlfriend, and how this, plus apathy of times, molded him into the conscienceless abortionist.
Abortion is deliberate, intentional and premeditated murder or killing the right of a person in the womb to develop and to live. Every unborn child of the womb is a living person and parts of the creation. Life includes the rights of an individual to his body and its completeness, free from dismemberment and extends to the use of God given faculties which make life enjoyable. Fetus has an active brain, a heart that beats in every single second and body, arms, and legs that move. In addition, abortion is included as one of the most essential parts of the definition-reproductive health-pro-choice position, in which the woman would be assigned exclusive rights to make the decision to terminate her pregnancy. Human life should be given its fair chance to live; it must be respected and protected. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person, one which is the inviolable "right to life". Therefore nobody may dispose of another's life, neither as an end nor as a means. Increase in the activity is directly related to the low contraceptive use and high unmet need of contraception. Contraceptive non-use is the major cause for unintended pregnancy resulting to abortion. Besides, major reason is that its too expensive to raise a child nowadays. Who is brave enough to end up the life in a womb faces the risk not only a criminal prosecution but more likely of developing complications. Since family planning is the most difficult job in the world, abortion absolutely increases its number.

The womb of a mother should be the safest refuge for the life of a fetus to be nurtured not to be aborted. Abortion destroys not only the body parts of the unborn baby but also trouble and traumatizes the lives of those who take part in it because of guilt. It is also the expulsion from the womb of an immature, non-viable fetus, God has breathed into it as soul, so what right has anyone to declare it "unfit to live"? No matter what the circumstances are surroundings the conception of a child, life is sacred and everybody bound to respect it.
Every fertilized ovum is already a person undergoing development towards maturity. It is not just a blood clot and it is not an animal or insect inside the womb of the woman.
For further information, teenage pregnancy is on the rise on account of promiscuity. In West premarital sex is the accepted norm. Sexuality involves how we feet out our body, our desire for physical closeness encompasses everything and sexual intimacy involves genital touching in intercourse. Conflict with personal and parental values, sexual transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancy are the risks in teenager’s sexuality. Premarital sex is the major cause of abortion, intake of drugs-others may indulge in sex and drugs signal to the youth and expose to more temptation resulting in the further erosion of moral values. Sexual abuse and assault-the forced sexual contact, age factor, deviant adolescent sexual behavior, and peer pressure groups and sexual curiosity.
As a fact, teenagers need to get the right information about their own reproductive system and about sex as a whole. Not just sex education peers about teaching the young to value education on sexuality but its all about commitment and responsibility.
 Abortion is not a game, it is not a simple choice because in every abortion kills an innocent baby.

Nurse Talk - Not all women in the world are as fertile as to our mothers, well but there are many basic procedures for women to become fertile and possibly can have a healthy baby. There are many married people who engaged many problems in their lives, but they keep hiding the main reason of their troubles and that is by not having a complete family. I hope this article would help some couples who are striving hard to have a complete family.

If your clock is ticking and you're wondering the best way to get your fertility jump-started, read on.
Seasonal Timing is Everything
According to Chinese medicine, seasons really do affect fertility. Chinese medicine looks to the energetic cycles of the universe for health answers; the female and male energies - also known as yin and yang - rise and fall throughout the year.
Male energy begins in the spring and peaks around June 21, the summer solstice. Female energy begins in autumn and peaks around December 21, the winter solstice. This means that the most fertile seasons for males are spring and summer; for women, autumn and winter.
Studies performed in China have confirmed that sperm production is generally more abundant and mobile during spring and summer. Conversely, the ovaries are more active and produce more follicles during fall and winter.
One possible explanation is that because men are more physically active during the spring and summer months, growth hormone and testicular functions correspondingly increase. As for women: because ovulation occurs ideally at a lowered body temperature, it makes sense that the cooler autumn and winter months equal increased fertility.
Something to know: too high of a temperature is not conducive to fertility. It has been found that when environmental temperature is overly hot - and the body is above the ideal temperature of 98.6 - there seems to be a drop in the testicular function for men and a delayed maturation of follicles in women.
Live Food Gives New Life
Mother nature has given us foods that naturally enhance fertility. The medical tradition of China - renowned as the country with the most populous people in the world - has long considered certain foods to be of particular value in increasing success with fertility.
These foods that contain the potential for new life include eggs, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes, and berries. Since these foods are themselves capable of propagation when hatched or sprouted, they are said to be abundant in life-giving energy.
It is no wonder that modern science has confirmed them as a category unto themselves; they are complete foods providing essential amino acids and helping to form the building block of protein. They are also high in the essential fatty acids (EFAs) critical for hormonal health and chock full of the antioxidants that prevent a premature decline in function and aging.
Fertility Enhancement
Here are a few ways a woman can help prepare herself for pregnancy:
1. Some evidence indicates that a woman's menstrual cycle and ovulation is affected by her amount of exposure to light. Less exposure to light corresponds to increased depression and a decrease in fertility.
As part of her fertility enhancing strategy, a woman may want increase her exposure to natural or full spectrum light during the day.
2. However, at night, any light should be completely blocked for adequate sleep; that means at least eight hours of sleep, and going to bed no later than 11 p.m.
3. Another measure a woman can take is to keep her body temperature slightly lower to create a more conducive environment for ovulation and maturation of follicles.
4. Moderate, low impact exercise can be of help - definitely avoid intense, high-impact physical workouts, which can actually inhibit fertility.
5. It is essential to keep stress low. Stress busters include meditation and tai chi.
I hope you can use this information to successfully prepare for pregnancy! I invite you to visit often and share your own personal health and longevity tips with me.
