May is National Teen Pregnancy Prevention & Preeclampsia Awareness Month

The teen pregnancy rate in the U.S. has declined 42% since its peak in 1990 and is now at a nearly 40-year low. Despite this progress, it is still the case that nearly 3 in 10 girls get pregnant by age 20 and that the U.S. still has the highest teen pregnancy rate among comparable countries. This suggests that we all need to continue helping teens postpone their families until they are older, through school, and in stable, committed relationships.

Preeclampsia is a disorder that occurs only during pregnancy and the postpartum period and affects both the mother and the unborn baby. It is a rapidly progressive condition characterized by high blood pressure and the presence of protein in the urine. Swelling, sudden weight gain, headaches and changes in vision are important symptoms; however, some women with rapidly advancing disease report few symptoms.

Typically, preeclampsia occurs after 20 weeks gestation (in the late 2nd or 3rd trimesters or middle to late pregnancy) and up to six weeks postpartum (after delivery), though in rare cases it can occur earlier than 20 weeks.
Proper prenatal care is essential to diagnose and manage preeclampsia.
