I am a 14-year- old girl. Kindly let me know the medical advantages and disadvantages of teenage marriage, sex, pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding.

At 14 years of age, you are still going through some physical and physiological development as such, there are no medical advantages in getting married and getting pregnant at this age. Rather, there are a lot of potential medical problems if you get pregnant at age 14. The current trend is to discourage teenage pregnancy and allow the body to be fully mature before subjecting it to the arduous tasks of pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding.
