Why do teens get pregnant ?

Me and my girlfriend have been together for a while we don't want kids. I'm 30 she's 26 she'll be 27 in a couple weeks. We decided we do not want kids. She watches 16 And Pregnant and Teen Mom i have no clue why. Those are the most annoying shows on TV. I think theyre the reason for the high ratings of teen pregnancy. Then they give the teen parents a show. I think its wrong to expose teen pregnancy on TV. Its a bad influence on young women. My girlfriend knew better. To me I think its the reason teens do get pregnant is because they think they can get on TV. What really causes teen pregnancy ?

    I had a friend who was pregnant at 14 and gave birth at 15. She got pregnant accidentally with her boyfriend and decided to keep the baby. She got pregnant the first time having sex. It only takes once to get pregnant at times. Her boyfriend stuck around and helped. Her boyfriend was killed in a car crash in 2016 and now she's a single mom of two kids.

    Sometimes it just happens. We shouldn't scare them into not telling anyone. They should be able to speak up about it and abort it before it gets any bigger, or if they want, they can keep it and raise their child.

    I sincerely hope that any teen who watches "Teen Mom" or "16 and Pregnant" on TV is smart enough to realize  that it's all fake and scripted and it is nothing like real life.  

    If a teen is influenced by that dribble, then there's no hope for her.

    Early pregnancies are due to low knowledge about sexual education and also early exposure to internet and media.

    They can also because of curiosity.
