Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

I can understand your feelings but it is not safe to have a teen pregnancy medically. Complications that may occur during a teen pregnancy include anemia, toxemia, high blood pressure, placenta previa and premature birth of the baby.

So you should wait till you are an adult to have a child.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
