INACIO, Ana Luiza Rodrigues  and  RASERA, Emerson Fernando. The repetition of “teenage pregnancy” and the family planning. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.2, pp.179-188. ISSN 1645-0086.

This study aimed to understand the meanings produced in family relationships against the repetition of "teenage pregnancy" and family planning. The analysis was based on a qualitative perspective, social constructionist, with conducting six individual interviews, semi -structured, referring to three households from lower classes young people who have experienced a repeat of "teenage pregnancy". The experience of repetition of "teen pregnancy" may be meant as winning opportunity of social roles and the construction of a life project. Family planning involved both the decision by pregnancy, such as the use of contraceptives, or the presence of difficulty for their use and / or access. The results reaffirm the need for critical reflection on the repetition of "teenage pregnancy" and family planning. It is argued the importance of contextualizing pregnancy among young people, so that they are not individually blamed as irresponsible and reckless, but that question because other life plans are not made possible for this population.
