Teen pregnancy: an issue that concerns everyone in Florida

Florida, Nov. 21.- Even though to date the municipality of Florida decreases in the number of teenage pregnancies when compared to the same period in the previous calendar, it is essential to maintain vigilance against this phenomenon loaded with risks for the future mother, threats to the fetus and consequences for the newborn.

According to figures from the Municipal Health Directorate, so far this year, more than 80 pregnant women under 20 years of age have been identified here, a figure above the accepted average for these cases.

Consequently, specialists and main drivers of the Maternal and Child Program (PAMI) of Florida turned their gaze towards families, schools and communities as essential allies to put a stop to the phenomenon of pregnancy at the earliest ages of life.

As has been warned in different ways, pregnancy in adolescence can lead to health dangers and disappointments such as hypertension, endometritis, premature birth, low birth weight, prenatal infections, complications and maternal or neonatal mortality.

Among the factors that can lead to adolescent pregnancy, the early initiation of sexual relations, low educational level, early maturation of the female reproductive system, family abandonment and poor sexual and reproductive education, among others, stand out.
