This talk will address trends in teen pregnancy and fertility since 1991 and the influence of proximate and distal risk factors for pregnancy on these rates. Dr. Santelli will explain the Contraceptive Risk and Pregnancy Risk Indexes and their utility in predicting future pregnancy rates. We will also examine fluctuations in the Pregnancy Risk Index over time and discuss possible causes and implications of these changes.
