Gender and Race
Pregnancy and STIs
Health Care Facilities
Resources we used for this information:
The Facts on Condoms:
When used consistently and correctly, latex condoms are highly effective in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV (during vaginal, oral, or anal intercourse).
Gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis are transmitted when infected semen or vaginal fluids contact mucosal surfaces. Because condoms block the discharge of semen or protect the male urethra against exposure to vaginal secretions, condoms provide a great level of protection against these STIs.
Condoms are effective in preventing some STI’s
Condoms are effective in helping to reduce the risk for HPV and cervical cancer
In a 28-month study of 123 college women, researchers found that sexually active women who used condoms consistently were significantly less likely to contract HPV than were women who had not used condoms.
Condoms are Effective in Preventing Unwanted Pregnancy!
Only two of every 100 couples who use condoms consistently and correctly will experience an unintended pregnancy—two pregnancies arising from an estimated 8,300 acts of sexual intercourse, for a 0.02 percent per-condom pregnancy rate.
In one year with perfect use (meaning couples use condoms consistently and correctly at every act of sex), 98 percent of women relying on male condoms will remain pregnancy free. With typical use, 85 percent relying on male condoms will remain pregnancy free.
By comparison, only 15 percent of women using no method of contraception in a year will remain pregnancy free.
Statistics on Teen Sexual Behavior
In 2003 and 2005, 53 percent of U.S. high school students reported never having had sexual intercourse, up from 46 percent in 1991.
Between 1991 and 2005, the percentage of U.S. youth that said they never had sex increased in all high school grades. For example, 33 percent of high school seniors in 1991 said they never had sex, compared to 53 percent in 2003 and 66% in 2005.
Abstinence rates increased between 1991 and 2005 by gender and by race/ethnicity. In 1991, 49 percent of high school teenage women said they had never had sex, compared to 54 percent in 2005; among males, the numbers were 43 and 52 percent, respectively.
In the United States, the typical age at first sexual intercourse is 17.
In U.S. studies, 70 percent of women and 69 percent of men ages 15 to 19 reported condom use at first sex.
Among sexually active U.S. high school youth in 2005, 63 percent reported using a condom during their most recent sexual experience—a significant increase over 1991's 46 percent.
In 2005, sexually active African American high school students were more likely than their white or Latino peers to report condom use (69, 63, and 58 percent, respectively)
Among sexually active youth, only about 8 percent of female teens and 17 percent of male teens reported using both condoms and hormonal contraception during their most recent sexual experience.
49% of males in high school reported having sex.
46 % of females in high school reported having sex.
60% of African American Students
44 % of White/Caucasian Students
49 % of Hispanic Students
reported having sex.
50 percent of white students said they never had sex in 1991, compared to 56 percent in 2007.
Among Latino students, the numbers were 47 and 49 percent, respectively.
Among African American students, 19 and 32 percent, respectively.
In one study, only 14 percent of gay, lesbian, and bisexual high school students never had sex, compared to 52 percent of their heterosexual peers
Studies have shown that homophobia and violence are significant barriers to protective behaviors among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth. These stressors damage youth’s self-esteem and may result in homelessness and a need to exchanged sex for shelter, food, and/or safety.
GLBTQ youth with more rejecting families are eight times more likely to report having attempted suicide, nearly six more times as likely to report high levels of depression, more than three times as likely to use illegal drugs, and three times as likely to be at high risk for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases than GLBTQ youth with less rejecting families.
The creation of a Gay Straight Alliance within secondary school settings creates a safer school climate for GLBTQ youth and decreases the occurrence of homophobic language.
Confidentiality affects youth access to health services. Twenty-one states and DC have policies that explicitly allow minors to consent to contraceptive services, 25 allow consent in certain circumstances, and 4 have no explicit policy
In 2006, the most recent year for which information is available, the estimated U.S. teen pregnancy rate was 71.5 pregnancies per 1,000 young women ages 15 to 19. The rate rose slightly from 69.5 between 2005-2006
African American, Hispanic and Native American teens are twice as likely as White and Asian youth to get pregnant!
Teen births in rural counties are one-third higher than developed urban areas.
HPV is the most common STI among teens, with some estimates reaching an infection rate of 35% of 14-19 year olds.
Girls and women 15 -19 years old had the largest number of reported cases of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea in 2011 of any age group.
By comparison, the United States’ teen pregnancy rate is over four times that of the Netherlands, over three times that of Germany, and almost three times that of France!

Am I ready to have sex?
How will I know?
How will having sex change my life?
Some research shows that participating in sex at an early age can negatively affect your educational experience. Of 273 adolescents surveyed, the sexually active students consistently had lower grade point averages and had lower self-esteem than those who were not sexually active. Another study showed that students who had low academic goals for themselves became sexually active sooner than those with higher goals and that once a student becomes sexually active his or her standard of goals decreased.
As you explore your sexuality, it is important to remember that sex is always optional. There are many reasons to abstain from sex until you are ready. Abstaining will give you more time to discover who you really are. Like it or not, you are still young.
Perhaps you and your partner have developed a loving, trusting relationship and you’re ready to become sexually active. You need to gather information about what sex is, discuss the outcomes, and be prepared to take on the responsibility of the outcomes:
