Abstract

Over recent years, the incidence of unwanted pregnancies among Thai adolescents has increased substantially. Little is known about support systems for such adolescents. Our inquiry seeks to address this gap in the literature which will be enhancing the care for adolescents with unwanted pregnancy. Research objective was explored about support systems for adolescents experiencing unwanted pregnancy in Thailand. Descriptive qualitative research was conducted.  Data were elicited via in-depth interviews with ten adolescent pregnant. Being unwanted pregnancy is the most emotional predicament. There are limited support systems for adolescents with an unwanted pregnancy in Thailand.  Illegal terminations result in crisis situations for those involved.  Some Thai parents are not teaching their children about sex and pregnancy due to the boundaries imposed by traditional Thai culture. However, when an unwanted pregnancy results in a crisis for a Thai adolescent girl, families do demonstrate enormous resilience.
