Early dating, as early as 12 years of age, is another factor that contributes to teen pregnancy. 3) Inadequate Knowledge about Safe Sex Most adolescents are unaware of safe sex. They probably have no access to the tralatitious methods of preventing pregnancy. And the main reason behind is that they are either too embarrassed or fear to seek information about it.4) Exploitation by Older Men This is another major factor that contributes to pregnancy among the teenagers. Those girls who fancy older men are more likely to become pregnant before they attain womanhood.
