Baja & Border News Translations: Teens Represent 4 of 10 Pregnancies; Recommend Pets Get Bordetela Protection

Teens Represent 4 of 10 Pregnancies (Frontera, 9/25/12, Angela Torres)

TIJUANA, BC - In Tijuana, 4 of every 10 pregnancies are adolescents between 14 and 19 years-old, said the State Secretary of Health, and although women live in various States of the Republic, those in the interior of the country which more of a family mentality at a younger age.

José Guadalupe Bustamante Moreno pointed out that due to the level of migration that exists in Tijuana and Rosarito, increases the pregnancy rate by one percentage point, compared to the State of Baja, where 3 of every 10 pregnant women are teenagers.

In a 2009 study conducted by the General Hospital, in Tijuana 3 of every 10 women, at that time, around 9,000 pregnancies occurred, 30% were adolescent girls, and of that total, 2,700, around 25%, the equivalent to more than 600 women, came from other States like Oaxaca, Chiapas or Michoacan, who had a goal to drop out of school and start a family.

In the aspect of health, the official emphasized that by getting pregnant at such a young age, girls are more likely to have complications, in addition to having a premature delivery, there is a higher risk both for the mother and the life and health of the child, since the reproductive system is not well formed and therefore can not support the weight of a baby.

He also explained that sexually transmitted diseases can also occur, but are rare, because they are just starting their sex life; however, it is necessary for them to have sufficient prevention information.

"What happens with these kids?" We really do not have a guarantee that they are mentally well-equipped and have complications in development; "but also they must spend two, three, and four weeks, a month in the hospital, because of size, very teeny", in reference to premature babies of teenage mothers.

Iliana Castañeda, responsible for the adolescent health program in Jurisdiction 2, noted that young people are exposed to many risks due to disinformation, since sexuality is still a taboo topic among families, so teenagers turn to the Internet.

"We allowing parents to bring teens and obtain information in the right places, such as health centers with doctors, or any institution, even with their own general practitioners so when the child has doubts, they do not look on the Internet or find out from friends. Because the information there will surely be very poor information or sometimes exceeds by far the doubts of the teenager", she said.

She mentioned it is necessary for parents talk to their children and explain that sexuality is something natural and that will have emotions, sensations and feelings, which will make them want to explore, but to do so responsibly. She added that interested parents can learn how to handle issues once their children ask, and be able to orient and to clear doubts of their teenager.

With a motto of "Build ties without violence", Juan Bosco School began a national week for adolescents, intended to strengthen activities based on the health of the young and decrease cases of domestic violence and unwanted pregnancies. The State official explained the week is to provide youth with information, answer questions and guide them in themes of sexuality, dating, violence, family and diseases. She said that once found, children with a problem are connected with trained personnel, and therapy is also provided to the parents, to find the root of the problem and promote better family communication.

Another pandemic lays in growth is obesity, as well as the use of substances also associated with family breakdowns, so emphasis in treating such disorders will also be provided at school sites.

Recommend Pets Get Bordetela Protection (Frontera, 9/25/12, Angela Torres)

TIJUANA, BC - Due to sudden changes in the temperature, veterinarians are recommending pets obtain protection from Bordetela, a bacterial disease, which could impair health, but not cause death.

Omar Rivera Cardona, veterinarian of the Municipal Police dog training unit, pointed out that due to climate changes, it is common for pets to develop Bordetela.

This bacterium is made more active by cold, heat and humidity. "This bacterium usually reaches the lymph nodes and throat tract, inflaming the lymph nodes, and when the dog becomes excited, it seems something is jammed in the animal’s throat", he explained.

The bacterium is benevolent and does not cause the death of the animal. Treatment consists of antibiotic use, therapy, rest and expectorants, and takes 6-7 days to disappear completely. To prevent Bordetela, you must immunize them at 2, 4 and 6 months of age; adult dogs are vaccinated once a year to prevent it.

"This disease, usually occurs where there are a large amount of animals; but is now so common that any pet can have it, but only dogs suffer from it, because cats are safe”, he mentioned.

The veterinary doctor said nasal discharge, eye secretions or coughing, are primary symptoms of Bordetela. http://www.frontera.info/EdicionEnLinea/Notas/Noticias/25092012/625121.aspx
