A theoretical approach to teenage pregnancy

Based on an extensive literature review, we analyze the main theoretical assumptions operating to construct adolescent pregnancy as a problem, be it health, socioeconomic and demographic. Those are contrasted and complemented with perspectives and research findings from Mexico and Latin America, in order to contribute to theoretical debates and broadening the vision in this phenomenon.
