  • The Decline in US Teen Pregnancy Rates, 1990-1995

    RB Kaufmann, et al (Ctrs for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Ga) Pediatrics 102:1141-1147, 1998.

       


    Authors found that after a rise of 9% in the teen pregnancy rate between 1985 to 1990, there was a turning point in 1991, and rates are now declining. Clinicians need to counsel their adolescent patients regarding responsible sexual behaviour, including abstinence and correct use of regular and emergency contraception.
