Rapid population growth,early pregnancy,unplanned pregnancy,early sexual initiation,child birth complications are those problems in Philippines especially in rural areas.And it bring an impact in economic and living conditions around the world.
22years old and up is an ideal age for pregnancy.But in reality,13-16 years are the highest population of pregnancy in Philippines.Early pregnancy is very risky,because as a adolescents the reproductive systems is not ready to develop a new life inside the uterus.It can affect emotionally and psychology.Being a mother is a full time responsibility.You should prepared physically,emotionally and psychologically.1 or 3 children,the ideal number of children,so that the parents can take care the family properly,can provide a better a life for their children.But in reality 6,7,8 or 12 are the children in family.And during the child birth most done at home.Because there's no public lying-in available in the community,lack of health personnel.Mother suffered from childbirth complications,put their lives at risk and it can cause death of both mother and child.
The only answer for these problems are:
Sex education for the youth.It includes comprehensive,strong sex education.Sufficient knowledge on reproductive system,it's functions,menstrual cycle and fertility.Risk of early pregnancy.
Family planning for the couple.It is very important.Contraceptive,and other methods that can prevent pregnancy.And protect oneself from being affected by HIV,STD and AIDS.Using contraceptive in Philippines depend on government source for commodities.
