Abstract

Sexuality is a natural and important part of human growth for young people and a developmental milestone. Statistics from the 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System show that 47% of students report they ever have had sex, yet only 19% of those teens reported using birth control pills, and 5% reported using the contraceptive shot, contraceptive vaginal ring, or a long-acting reversible contraceptive method (implant or intrauterine device), at last sex.
