Unwanted Pregnancy Threatens Women's Health

Pregnancy should be a separate gift for the couple concerned. But in fact, it is not uncommon pregnancy in some women it becomes a threat to the health of their own. Why?

Many women have difficulty reaching the pregnancy, and often much too easy to achieve pregnancy. In some cases, many women easily achieve pregnancy, even when they do not want it. In Indonesia, many such cases occur, especially in women at younger ages that are psychologically not ready to accept the presence of the baby.

These factors lead teens having sex at a very young age, the risk of any unwanted pregnancy. In the end, they were forced to perform marriage at an early age.

Age dispensation married couples who filed ranged from 16 to 21 years.

While in Central Lombok, the issue of Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) is still high which stands at 228 deaths per 100,000 live births (IDHS 2007). West Nusa Tenggara Province is one of the highest contributors to maternal mortality in Indonesia. In 2011 there were 18.915 deliveries in Central Lombok and an estimated 10 percent of births are to teenage girls between the ages of 14 to 19 years (Data Central Lombok District Health Office, 2012).

Because it looks clear how adolescent reproductive health is closely related to poverty in both Gunungkidul and Central Lombok.
