Speaking as someone who became pregnant as a teenager while on birth
control, and who watched my chances whither away 30 years later, I can
support your statement. It's insanely easy to get pregnant as a
teenager; biology has made a concerted effort for the species to
reproduce at that time. Human (or transhuman) women are still a long ways
away from mastering their own human reproductive cycle, especially the
beginning and the ending phases.
