Mp highlights teen pregnancy rates at 18 and 20
It’s not uncommon for teen pregnancies to decrease between ages 15 and 18. But a new survey finds teens who have had sex have a much higher rate of pregnancy and still end up losing their virginity.
As teens get older, the average age at which their partners do the deed drops, which is the same age at which they start the process of starting a family.
“I think we have it in our DNA,” said Dr. Jessica Stiles, one of the lead researchers behind the survey, published in the June issue of Planned Parenthood’s Journal of Teen and Adolescent Health.

A pregnancy, however, ends sooner among people who’ve had sex with someone 15 years younger than them, Stiles said. One in 11 15-year-old girls had sex with someone 16 or older and another in 6 had sex with someone 18 or younger.

The teen pregnancy rate for 18- and 20-year-olds who had sex with someone who was younger than them is higher than in the general population for the first time: 25.7 percent for teens who did not have sex with someone 17 or younger, compared with 23.7 percent for teenagers who had sex with someone 18 or older.

The teens who had sex with someone more than 15 years older had the highest rate of pregnancy. But as they reach adulthood, more teens are having less sex and are delaying marriage, with the average age at which they have had a baby increasing from 15 to 20 years.
“The most surprising finding for me was that this is really a relatively recent phenomenon. Even though it doesn’t happen right away in adolescence, it appears in the first year of adulthood,” Stiles said.
Of the teenagers who’d had sex with someone who was younger than them, 38 percent reported doing so with their에비앙 카지노 primary partner, and 27 percent with someone else. Just 28 percent of participants were having sex with a teen with whom they had sex only when the teen was 15 year개츠비 카지노s old, she said.
A year after the results were announced, Planned Parenthood reported that the teen birthrate for women 18 and over increased by 5.2 births, which is on par with a more than doubl
