Preconception Counseling
Imparts Seriousness to Sexual Behavior

Page 1 . .. Page 2 . ..

Besides sex education, preconception counseling could impart seriousness to adolescent sexual behavior. Unintended pregnancies are most common among teenagers, and the consequences that follow are severe for them, their offspring and families, and for the society at large. 

Tween, teens and youths shy away from visits to doctor’s clinic; more so for being guided on medical interventions needed for healthy childbearing in future. The concept of counseling on essential health needs associated with child birth is too far fetched for teenagers in love. They indulge in sexual activities without regarding the possibility of conceiving a baby.

Preconception counseling therefore need to be initiated for children
much before they attain puberty.
