Denial is the act of denying a fact, or to argue that this it is not true. Denial of pregnancy is a psychological phenomenon, but it is also expressed on the physical side. As we were told during one of our interviews, by a hospital psychologist "denial of pregnancy is this: I know, without knowing, and so mostly I do not want to know what I know". Yet some studies show that about one to three cases per thousand are births of denial, which is roughly between eight hundred and two thousand four hundred cases per year. This phenomenon is not so isolated it. Since the media's attention on the problem of denial of pregnancy and the different stories that have emerged, we can ask ourselves how the denial of pregnancy occurs among women aged 15 to 25 years, and what are the psychological and social consequences?
