Teen girls report abusive boyfriends try to get them pregnant
Date:9/20/2007

tions are clear when we see girls who cannot consistently use contraception, who are requesting frequent emergency contraception or who seek repeat pregnancy testing, we need to be asking very directly about abuse from male partners and find ways to support them and promote their safety.

Miller added that she and her colleagues will next look at the phenomenon of reproductive control in a larger study and at the population level. They just completed a clinic-based survey of 825 youth in the Boston area designed to address the prevalence of intimate partner violence and related behaviors among boys and girls seeking confidential care, and they are in the process of designing a national study to address these same issues.

Miller has also designed a study that would test interventions for partner violence in family planning clinics among women ages 16 to 24 years, and she is planning a study of dating violence intervention to be conducted in school-based clinics in California and Massachusetts. These interventions involve identifying intimate partner violence through screening questions and include a protocol for providing referrals to appropriate resources, such as advocacy groups, shelters, counseling and agencies that can address safety.

Our work is aimed at documenting the severity and prevalence of intimate partner violence in teens, Miller said. Ultimately, we want to reduce teen pregnancy and the devastating effects of partner violence.
