Teen pregnancy is a big issue here in the US. It seems that no matter how much birth control that there is provided... the percent of underaged pregnant women gets higer every time we look at the statistics.78% of the pregnancies by teens are unplanned,and 76% are not of marriage. 55% are born, 31% are aborted, and 14% are miscariaged.Engaging in unprotected sex by a numerous amount of young girls is a 90% chance of getting pregnant. Protection of any sort (discluding pulling out)has a lower risk, but it is still an unneccesary risk that you definately dont want to take.if using methods, you should combine them.

Only 1 in 6 women combine. 44% use pills, 38% use condoms, 10% use injectables, 4% use withdrawl, and 3% use implant.

The govronment is making an effort to produce and make these birth control items more avalible to teens. This was just touching on a few of the factors of teen prenancy.
