The high number of pregnant teenagers in Brazil indicates contradictions in the realization of shared values. Objective: To analyze the impact of the social dichotomy between thinking and acting on women of three different age groups who became pregnant during adolescence. Method: In the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, fifteen participants completed an online interview and were divided into three groups. Using content analysis methodology, three categories of analysis were created. Results: Similar verbalizations from women of different generations reflect the perpetuation of a cycle of misinformation. Conclusions: New public policies and healthy spaces for dialogue could combat the situation of vulnerability in adolescence and favour the full experience of this fundamental phase of existence.
