 Increase in Sexual Activity Between Teenage Girls

New research has shown that teenage girls in America are engaging in more sexual activity than before.

While teenage pregnancy rates have dropped, there has been an increase in sexual activity between young girls in the last 10 years.


The decrease in heterosexual activity may be the reason for reduction in teenage pregnancies.

'More were using emergency contraception if they were heterosexually active, and perhaps even that more were engaging in same-sex behavior,' researchers said.
