Adolescent contraception.

Adolescent pregnancy rates have declined modestly, most likely because of the increased use of condoms, especially at first intercourse. Condom distribution in schools appears to be effective in promoting condom use without increasing sexual activity. Although, to date, no contraceptive has been as effective as Norplant in reducing teen pregnancy, use of the method has declined dramatically. Depo-Provera use is increasing, but continuation rates are disappointing and the impact on teen pregnancy rates is as yet unknown. Emergency contraception remains underutilized, and interventions to improve oral contraceptive compliance are beginning to be explored. School-based programs that provide contraception without adding a strong educational component fail to improve contraceptive use or reduce pregnancy rates. Use of any contraceptive by teens is cost effective.[1]
