# The urge of having sex # Although teen pregnancy may not be considered pier pressure, teen sex is. # Most teenagers are uncomfortable asking their parents to be …on birth control # The hormones are going crazy at that time # It's new and it is very tempting at that age
Unprotected sex, lack of sexual education, no access to contraceptives.
The basic cause is sexual intercourse... Usually unprotected and not meaning to cause a pregnancy.
Having sex and not wearing contriception? Parents who refuse to talk to their children about sex are partly at fault too. But if you have warned your teen, It's probably just …her natural curiosity.
There are two ways to go, here In todays society, we see our favorite stars getting pregnant, having sex, and what not. So I guess it's the "trendy" thing to do. But I don't s…ee what's so great about it.Also, it is harder to fit in and feel accepted now. Teenager feel that they must have sex to be cool and popular. Or they just want to feel loved by a boy. ^^^^^^^^^ no don't listen to that im a pregnant teen. You meet someone and have feelings about that person and want to move to the next step which is intercourse. Some times your not thinking about the out come of not wearing a condom. Its not about fitting in because believe me im far from fitting in. i don't have friends anymore i don't have enough time to hangout with them. or enough money. I do live with my boyfriend but its really hard its something that is not really planned but im glad it happened i wouldn't change it for anything or any reason
well peers can cause teenage pregnancy.truthfully im 16.but theres a lot of people that go to me school and they get forced to do something that they don't want to do,b…ut they want to do it to look cool.but teens can push other kids to the point to where thay have sex and they get pregnant.most of the time its when a boy and a girl like eachohter and the boy says oh well if i use a condom i won't feel anything.yes that has happened to me before and i still did it cuz i really liked him,and look at me now a 16 year old that has a 1 year old baby girl living in gary.
The teenage pregnancy rate varies from country to country, state to state, and city to city. There are a wide array of potential caused to the rise of teenage pregnancy. Among… those factors is education level, income level, and social levels.
Having sex like everyone else is the main reason but there are also deeper reasons. Some feel it makes their relationship more serious having a baby and wants a family, not re…alizing very few stay together due to the strain of having a baby. Others have not got proper sex education and believe in myths like you can't get pregnant the first time or they just are not educated about birth control. Teens are very much living in the now and don't always think about the consequences, thinking "it wont happen to me". That is just how they are because their brains are not fully developed yet. And then of course there are those who are on bc but it fails.
The biggest reason that there are teen pregnancies is the lack of birth control. Even before the earthquake, the medical care in Haiti was slim. Beyond birth control, however,… the average age of death is around 49. Perhaps some teenagers feel that because their life expectancy is shorter, they should have children at a younger age.
The economy causes many things, if someone does somethinga, it is likely someone else will copy them. For example if someone said they had had sex at 13, then many other peopl…e would think this was right, and think that's the right age, when it is not, and by doing this.. it can lead to unprotected sex.. even pregnancy, in the world we live in today, we copy friends.. family and generall other people if we agree with it.
It cannot be argued that teenage pregnancy is a direct cause crime. i.e the moment a teenage girl becomes pregnant, they do not also instantly become a criminal. However, it… is true that crime rates are higher among pregnant teens. But it would be wrong to conclude that teenage pregnancy results in crime, since it may be that crime results in teenage pregnancy. Or both of those results could be externally influenced by another thing, for example (randomly), number of piercings. It may be that those with more than three piercings are destined for teenage pregnancy and a life of crime, however the stats currenlty available do not go into that level of detail.
Lack of education about sex and contraception.
