The present paper aimed to investigate how adolescents with pregnancy experience evaluate received support from their families in comparison with an adolescent group without pregnancy experience. 452 low income adolescents, both sex, aged 14 to 19 years old answered to a questionnaire. The results revealed that more girls (64.2%) than boys (35.8%) declared pregnancy experience, χ2 (2, n = 2617) = 48.32, p <.001. Moreover, it was observed that the group with pregnancy experience, in comparison with other group, revealed more perception on the family relationships safety, t (408) = -3.0, p <.01; mutual respect among family members in their homes, t (392) = -2.3, p <.05; and received stronger general support from their family, t (397) = -1,3, p <.05.
