A cross sectional study involving 50 teenagers was done to determine the relationship between socio-demographic profile and family functioning and teenage pregnancy. A self-made questionnaire was used to establish demographic profile and know the prevalence of teenage pregnancy. Family AFGAR was used to determine family functioning. Results show that 63% of the respondents are elementary graduate, 43% have income between 5000-1000  per month, 39% are Catholics. Eighty two percent of the respondents belong to highly functional family and the rest belong to dysfunctional family. There is no significant relationship between socio-demographic profile and teenage pregnancy. No significant relationship is also found between socio-demographic profile  and family functioning. Teenage pregnancy is not related to or dependent on socio-demographic profile and family functioning of the respondents. Education about sexual health knowledge among high school student should be undertaken. Together with the pregnant teenager, parents should be involved in family counselling when discussing teenage pregnancy.
