The sexual and reproductive health of
adolescents has generated much concern in NGOs due to
its physical, psychological and social repercussions.
Early pregnancy is one of the most common
consequences of premature unions that culminate in
school dropout, negatively influencing literacy and
probable health risks. The problem arises, what is the
perception of the students of the Secondary General
School of the 1st and 2nd cycle of Nicoadala about the
risks and consequences of early pregnancy? The general
objective is to analyze the perception of students at
Escola S.G. of the 1st and 2nd cycle of Nicoadala on the
risks and consequences of early pregnancy. The study
becomes relevant because of the attempt to minimize
early teenage pregnancy, as it is one of the Public Health
problems. This is a qualitative study based on
exploratory and descriptive research. Convenience
sampling of 40 adolescents aged 15 to 19 years was used.
Bibliographic research, semi-structured interview and
indirect observation were used for data collection, the
content analysis technique was applied in the data
analysis. As a result, it was noticed that about 77.5% of
the interviewed individuals showed some knowledge
about the risks and consequences of early pregnancy,
despite not being solid and lacking more clear and
objective information and some adolescents adhere to
unsafe sex due to pressure. of peers and family members.
It is concluded that the School must create sustainability
mechanisms and increasingly potentiate SSRD programs
and adolescents must use contraceptive methods.
