Analysis of data from seven secondary schools indicates that the inability to say no was associated with coital and noncoital sexual activity. Findings suggest that family planning programs need to consider the role of interpersonal skills in controlling adolescent fertility. Efforts are needed to increase the capacity of adolescents to assert themselves in situations involving sexual activity and contraception. (Author/JDM)
