Teen Pregnancy!

Each Year, almost 750,000 teenage women aged 15-19 become pregnant. The teenage pregnancy rate in this country is at it's lowest in 30 years, down 36% since it's peak in 1990. A growing body of research suggests that both increased abstinence and changes in contraceptive practice are responsible for recent declines in teenage pregnancy.

* The teenage pregnancy rate among those who ever had intercourse declined 28% between 1990 and 2002.

* Between 1988 and 2000, teenage pregnancy rates declined in every state and in the District of Columbia.

* By 2002, the teenage abortion rate had dropped by 50% from it's peak in 1988.
* From 1986 to 2002, the proportion of teenage pregnancies ending in abortion declined more than one-quarter from 46% to 34% of pregnancies among 15-19 year olds.

* Among black women aged 15-19, the nationwide pregnancy rate fell by 40% between 1990 and 2002.

* Among white teenagers, it declined by 34% during the same time period.

* Among Hispanic teenagers the pregnancy rate increased slightly from 1991-1992, but by 2002 was 19% lower than the 1990 rate.

In general, states with the largest numbers of teenagers also had the greatest number of teenage pregnancies. California reported the highest number of adolescent pregnancies (113,000). followed by Texas, New York, Florida and Illinois (with about 37,000-80,000 each). The smallest numbers of teenage pregnancies were in Vermont, North Dakota, Wyoming, South Dakota and Alaska, all of which reported fewer than 2,000 pregnancies among women aged 15-19.

obviously like your web site however you have to take a look at the spelling
on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife
with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to inform the
reality on the other hand I will surely come back again.

Hi everyone on the 26th of july 2013 I went in for my 3 month cancer check up which everything was great I still have no signs of the cancer returning. I thought I was finally starting my period after being 10 days late but it was very light spotting then it stopped completely. the next morning I had a little brownish blood so I figured hey my period is back but it only lasted 2 days. Those 2 days it stayed a brownish so I didn't think anything of it but for the past week I have been eating more extremely tired an have nausea and vomiting. Today is day 9 after Ive stopped the brownish bleeding and my sister in law says I need to take a test because that was implantation bleeding I had know idea what that was until I started to look it up so thank you so much for all the great information. Not getting my hopes up of being pregnant cause ive been trying for 2 years and nothing but you never know!!!
