Pregnancy is a major factor that is over taking the teen community. This is an action that is happening and no one can find a way to slow it down.

This can lead to mental illnesses and possible peer pressures that we adults may not know of. It’s important for health care administrators to study this topic to learn about different attitudes that can present signs of possible reoccurring pregnancy in teens. This study can lead to learning about new mental illnesses that can be causing these teens to want to get pregnant again. The article talks about different factors that cause teenagers to want to get pregnant again.
