Are Adolescents Who Report Prior Sexual Abuse at Higher Risk for Pregnancy?
Rainey, David Y.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n10 p1283-88 Oct 1995
The reproductive and sexual histories of 200 sexually active females, ages 13 through 18, were assessed. Forty adolescents reported sexual abuse, and compared to nonabused peers, they were more often trying to conceive, had boyfriends pressuring them to conceive, and had fears about infertility. No intergroup differences were found in median age of first voluntary intercourse or frequency of sexual intercourse. (Author/SW)
