Male condom- "failure rate 18%"
Female condom- "failure rate 21%" (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
"Only 45% of adolescent males report condom use".
"Females report less frequent use of condoms during intercourse than males".
How many people here have either known a pregnant teen or a teen that is currently pregnant?
The best control method is abstinence. According to M.D. Mary L. Gavin, "Abstinence is 100% effective in preventing pregnancy." Access to condoms is not the most effective way to prevent teen pregnancy, because there is still a possibility of getting pregnant, even with access to condoms.

Condom's NOT baby Proof
“Oil-based or petroleum-based lubricants like mineral oil or massage lotion can destroy condoms, making them more likely to break,” says sexologist and sexuality educator Megan Andelloux. "
Condoms do not prevent teen pregnancy, it is only a method of contraceptive that has flaws and still has a probability of failure
"The children born to the youngest teen mothers are at greater risk of being an
“indicated case” of child abuse or neglect (and being placed in foster care)
than are those born to older mothers."
