The experience of an unintended pregnancy leads to two primary responses; carrying the pregnancy to term or termination of the pregnancy. The goal of the current formative study is to understand how young people make decisions and deal with the consequences of an unintended pregnancy. Study findings are expected to inform the design and delivery of SRH intervention programs to meet the unique needs of adolescents living in resource poor urban settings.
