MOLINA GOMEZ, Ana María; PENA OLIVERA, Roine Alberto; DIAZ AMORES, Claudia Esther  y  ANTON SOTO, Maridé. Conditioning Factors and Social Consequences of Teenage Pregnancy. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2019, vol.45, n.2, e218.  Epub 02-Jun-2019. ISSN 0138-600X.


The risks and negative consequences that adolescent pregnancy has for physical health are known, but they do not act in isolation, but associated with psychosocial, economic, political, structural and gender factors. This situation cannot be considered as a biological problem because it is also a social problem with numerous edges and fields of negative influence.

Objective: To update the conditioning and social consequences of pregnancy in adolescence.


A literature search was conducted using the terms "pregnancy in adolescence", associated with "social problem".


Our study found that low schooling, belonging to a dysfunctional family, living in a rural or marginal area, as well as difficulties in the perception of risk are conditioning factors for adolescent pregnancy.


The greatest social consequences are school dropout, the mother´s feeling of frustration, disturbances in the family dynamics, and difficulties for the upbringing of the child and for the insertion in the future work life of the adolescent mothers.

Palabras clave : pregnancy in adolescence; adolescent health; social problems.
