We have our own aversions to someone who gets pregnant as a teen. And, the girl also has to face many social and economic difficulties. The society looks down upon a teen mother, for the obvious reasons of ethics and morality.
But, here's the breaking NEWS!
Studies have revealed that a woman's health in her forties depeds largely upon her age when she first got pregnant. And, the rest is shocking!
Recommended- These celebrities were actually teen parents.
A study was conducted wherein some comparisons were made between women who first got babies in their 20s, before their 20s, and after that, by researchers at Ohio State University.
But, there was negligible difference in the well being of women who conceived in their teenage and those who did in their twenties.
Studies have always concentrated on the bad effects of early childbirth, but the health of the woman at a later age is one plus point here.
Also, it was noted that women who got pregnant outside their marriages were healthier if they got hitched, than if they stayed single.
"Most studies indicate that marriage promotion efforts have been unsuccessful in increasing marriage rates," Willimas said, "Our findings suggest that may be a good thing, at least for black women's health."
