What If Your Teenager Get Pregnant?

What if you received a letter from a 13 years old girl telling that she is pregnant? Her monthly period has stopped. She is so scared and not knows what to do. How do you react to her and what should you do to help her?

First, calm down yourself. If she is your daughter, your niece, cousins or your friend's daughter or who ever they are try not to show disappointment. Try to be cool when you face such situation. You have to understand that it's not easy for her to tell her personal problems with someone else.

You must talk with the girl face to face and understand what she is facing. This is a dramatic frightening moment for her, so not make it rough. Try to find out by yourself is she really pregnant or just afraid she might be. Buy her pregnancy test kit. Take her to doctor to do more test because the sooner you'll know the truth, the sooner you'll be able to deal with it.

She probably thought you are the only person she trust to solve her problem so don't get upset with her. If she is pregnant, her body is going to through a lot changes. You can consult her problem with doctors or go to Planned Parenthood clinic in your area.

Naturally, her bodies change. Her boobs get bigger, her tummies expand and her taste buds become fickle, taking her on a whirlwind from one craving to the next. She can change from a once slender girl into chubby girl.

Of course, morning sickness, which can happen at anytime during the day, is also a new change for the girl. Foods and even smells once she loved may not interest her no more. On top of that, she might face pimple outbreaks, exhaustion and sore feet and backs. And then there are the emotional and mental changes.

Obviously she is pregnant if you find those signs on the girl after her test prove that she is positive pregnant. So, you must get close near to her. She might feel lonely because she has to leave school and thinks that everybody hates her for what she did. Be a good friend of her.

Try to take her into the mom mindset so she can be more protective to herself. Encourage her that pregnant is a wonderful moment for a woman, and no need to be shamed of. So, she needs to protect her body by eating good nutrition food and having a lot of rest because this is for someone's sake inside her.

Unless the girl don't want her partner to be closed to her, let her partner involved in helping her going through this difficult condition. If he is as young as her, maybe he can visit her amid his school days. Let them decide what best for them. But the most important things for you are to tell them that they still have future. Good luck
