Abstract: Denial of pregnancy or cryptic pregnancy is a common and underdiagnosed medical condition which could be a big challenge in adolescent pregnancy. This is a case report of cryptic pregnancy in an in-school adolescent in which unsuspected labour in a hotel room resulted in a near miss. As denial of pregnancy is highly unpredictable and underdiagnosed, it has become imperative to have a high index of suspicion to be able to capture more people, especially the highly vulnerable adolescents that have the condition. At the primary level of prevention, sexual and reproductive health information, education and care, central to which is adolescent contraception, is Hobson’s choice in secondary school educational curriculum.
