A profile of teenage pregnancy in Spain
Date:5/25/2010

mpanied by a progressive decline in the age at which women begin to use contraception. Hence, while women born between 1951-1955 used contraceptive methods after turning 25 years old (and had sexual relations at 21.5), women 20 years later (1971-1975) began to use contraceptives at 19.6 years old, while becoming sexually active at 18.9.

Thus, there remains a gap between the onset of sexual activity and when contraception is used, although it's shrinking: 3.8 years difference in the case of women who were between 50 and 54 years old at the time of the survey and 0.7 years for those between 30 and 34.

The decline in age at the onset of sexual activity has been accompanied, logically, with an increase in the number of adolescent women at risk for potential pregnancy. However, when comparing each generation, there is a clear downward trend in the percentage of pregnancies among women who had sex before age 20. Thus, 60% of women born between 1941-1945 were teenage mothers, whereas among the last group analyzed (1981-1985) the statistic only reached 10.7%.

Impact of pregnancy on the life of an adolescent

"We can say that one of the biggest disadvantages for teenage mothers is the necessity to end their academic studies early," said Delgado. Although a trend can be seen even in high school, the differences are particularly noticeable when talking about college level studies.

Concerning the group of women who were between 20 and 49 years old at the time of the survey, less than 5% percent pursued a college education and the same statistic was down to even to 0% for those between 30-34 years old. By contrast, in the same age group, non teenage mothers pursued a college education at a significantly different rate: 22.6%.

As for their position within the workplace, in general, the research shows that teenage mothers, regardless of age, are working outside the home to a lesser extent than the rest of their pee
