Study: Fewer Teens Having Sex, But Many Who Do Getting Pregnant

FROM: CBSNEWS.COM / THE EARLY SHOW

Thursday, May 4, 2006: A new study from the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy has a mixed bag of results. On the one hand, it seems fewer teens are having sex and, because of that, there are fewer teen pregnancies overall.

The group says those numbers have decreased because this is a generation that's always known about STDs and AIDS, and there's plenty of evidence to suggest some teens are taking a more cautious attitude toward sex.

However, the study focuses on the teens who are having sex, and the numbers show that, overall, one-third of sexually experienced teen girls aged 15-19 have been pregnant, and one-in-eight sexually experienced teen boys have caused a pregnancy.

The research is based on an online quiz and reflects results from 2002.

On The Early Show Thursday, sex therapist Dr. Laura Berman discussed the study, and had advice for parents about talking to teens about the issue of teen pregnancy, and how to avoid unwanted pregnancies.
