Impact on condom usage

Impact on Condom Usage

Return to National Average suggests last year was abnomal

Why pregnant

Why Pregnant?

  • Having sex to have a baby begins at 1% (7th grade) and grows to 7% (start of 9th), then goes to 5%

  • Trend is upward

  • Consistent with focus group findings that “intentional” pregnancies are happening earlier

  • Clearly a socially desirable activity in some circles early, not later

Focus group results

Focus Group Results

  • Getting pregnant is NOT seen as a negative consequence

    • All teen moms had access to condoms and, in many cases, other forms of birth control but chose not to use it

    • Most pregnancies occur in a “serious” relationship so protection against STDs is not a concern

Progress report

  • Girl, 15, Shot at Party

    • Shooting occurred at 3:30 a.m.

    • Girl was pregnant



  • Could promote condoms and birth control, but until pregnancy is viewed as a negative consequence, behavior won’t change

  • Keeping high school message in only health is not enough

  • We are losing opportunities to reach kids, especially in middle school

  • If we can’t reach parents, too, then we are going to continue to face strong challenges

Best practices from research

Best Practices from research

  • Motivate, Educate, Prepare

    • Offer reasons why

    • Must be medically accurate

    • Improve decision making overall

  • Teachers have to believe in & be comfortable with subject

  • Reach parents and involve them in the conversation

  • Include community service

  • Don’t stop messaging – continue through HS

  • Recognize power of Developmental Assets



  • Take over teaching the curriculum

  • Spread out delivery

  • Exhibit local administrator support

  • Find a way to reach more High School students
