May is teen pregnancy prevention month

May 02, 2024 Uncategorized

May is recognized as Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of preventing unplanned pregnancies among adolescents. Teen pregnancy can have profound and long-lasting effects on both the young parents and their children. It can disrupt educational and career goals, limit economic opportunities, and lead to poorer health outcomes for both the mother and child. By focusing on prevention, we can empower teenagers with the knowledge and resources they need to make informed decisions about their reproductive health and avoid unintended pregnancies.

At Nevada Health Centers, we offer solutions to help prevent your teen from becoming pregnant, including birth control and reproductive health education. Through these means we aim to teach your child the reason why it’s important to practice abstinence, but if they are unable to do this, we make sure they know about the many available forms of birth control and safe sex practices to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
