Repeat Births by Teen Girls Still Too High: CDC
Date:4/2/2013

xually active teens, the discussion can focus on the most effective types of birth control, according to the report.

Dr. Jill Rabin is chief of ambulatory care, obstetrics and gynecology at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, in New Hyde Park, N.Y. She said: "There are several excellent options available not only to continue to ensure that the current rate of teenage pregnancy continues to decline (as it has from 2007), but especially to prevent repeat pregnancies among adolescents.

"These include: linking pregnant and parenting teens to home-based and school-based programs, and support and funding for programs which offer a support net of services for these often socio-economically underserved teens, including clinical, nutritional and psychosocial support. This is truly a unique opportunity to open our national conversation about safer sexual health, birth spacing and birth control, especially the most effective method: long-acting reversible contraception (LARC). Long-acting reversible contraception includes a device inserted into the uterus, or an implant in the arm lasting 3 to 10 years and has been deemed clinically safe for teens. These initiatives, including LARC, are a golden opportunity to enhance the long-term health of our teenagers."
