The girl effect: The clock is ticking

Early teenage pregnancy is a problem in our country that needs attention. In my practice, I have seen young teenage mothers. I even had a 12-year old girl with her second pregnancy. How can such things happen?

One of the things that greatly affects our society is the rising number of unwanted early pregnancy. Young women as early as age 8 are being  readied for arranged marriages. This is a tall matter as culture plays a big factor here. However, health promotion and educating the community can help them understand the health implications of such practices.We need to do something about this. The clock is ticking.
