Social and Affective Factors Associated with Adolescent Pregnancy.
Smith, Peggy B.; And Others
Journal of School Health, v52 n2 p90-93 Feb 1982
Study examined perceptions of pregnancy, including life-expectations, desire for pregnancy, and knowledge of menstrual cycle in a sample of pregnant urban adolescents. Results indicate that, although teens were aware of birth control methods, they had little understanding of menstrual cycle and its relationship to intercourse. And while few adolescents used birth control devices, most were surprised at conception. (JN)
