Evidence-Based Answer

The combination of sexual education and contraception promotion reduces the rate of unintended pregnancy in 10 to 19 year olds by up to 80% (SOR: A, systematic review of RCTs). Contraceptive education with free access to long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) and other contraceptives also decreases the rate of teen pregnancy (SOR: B, consistent findings from 2 prospective cohort studies).
