Teenage pregnancy receives much attention around the world, partly because of the potential disruptions in a teenage mother''s life. Previous research regarding teenage pregnancy has mainly focused on the “problematic” nature of this phenomenon while not enough research has been undertaken focusing on understanding the topic from the teenagers'' perspectives. Efforts to understand this complex phenomenon within different contexts might contribute to unpack the reasons why teenagers fall pregnant. This book therefore, unravels the complex facilitators and inhibitors of teenage pregnancy from the perspective of teenagers themselves. Three groups of teenagers are analyzed as they tell their stories. The author takes the reader through the feelings, perceptions and reasons for teenage pregnancy in peri-urban KwaZulu-Natal. Teenage girls'' perceptions and experiences are analyzed using current South African research findings which address the issue of teenage pregnancy/fertility.
