Teen girls at higher risk OK with emergency department offering pregnancy prevention info

from ScienceDaily

Adolescent girls receiving a wide range of medical care in the Emergency Department (ED) are receptive to receiving information about preventing pregnancy, according to the results of a cross-sectional survey published online July 11 in the Journal of Pediatrics. According to a study team led by Children's National Health System, about 615,000 U.S. adolescents — or 5.9 of every 100 girls and teens — become pregnant each year. More than three-quarters of these pregnancies are unintended. Less than one-third of adolescents report having received contraceptive counseling, and about the same percentage reported using condoms the most recent time they had sex. more
