Why do teenagers become pregnant?

Teenage pregnancy is often a cause and consequence of social exclusion. The risk of teenage parenthood is greatest for young people who have grown up in poverty and disadvantage, or those with poor educational attainment. Overall teenage parenthood is more common in areas of deprivation and poverty.
