Since many adolescents have poor access to preventive care, hospitalizations present a critical opportunity to address adolescents' reproductive health. The purpose of this study was to assess provision of reproductive health services within a hospital setting.

We describe differences in patterns for males and females by race/ethnicity and nativity, and test for racial/ethnic interactions within each cohort. Analyses found that the prevalence of parent-teen discussions about SRH increased across cohorts. For males and females, there were increases in parent-teen discussions about condoms, and for males only, there were increases in any SRH discussions and discussions about contraception and STIs. Based on interactions, parent-teen discussions and STI discussions increased most for Hispanic females, and among Hispanics, increased most for the foreign-born. These data indicate incr...

A WHO report estimates that one woman out of three throughout the world will experience physical and/or sexual violence by a partner or a non-partner (1). The short- and long-term morbidity associated with rape is enormous (2 –5). Sexual assault and sexual violence are associated with worse physical and mental health (2–5). In order to limit these consequences, it is essential to offer adequate medical care, including the prevention of sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy, as well as psychological, social an d legal support and advice (6).

Also, multiple characteristics influence contraceptive selection and appropriate counseling and supplemental support to help women clarify their preferences is needed. Therefore, we report the overall sexual health and contraceptive awareness in pregnant Mexican teenagers.

The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support the development of new and innovative on-demand, event -driven and long-acting systemic and non-systemic multipurpose prevention technologies (MPT). It supports development of MPTs that prevent HIV infection and pregnancy (hormonal and non-hormonal methods); sexually transmitted infections (STI) and pregnancy, and (HIV/STI) and non-HIV STI MPTs in cis and trans males and females of all ages. Applications for MPT development may involve pharmacokinetic (PK), pharmacodynamic (PD), safety and, drug-drug interactions (DDI) studies using drug development...

Authors: Abstract As adolescents with a genetic syndrome transition to adult medical care, they may be referred to obstetrician-gynecologists for routine preventive or contraceptive services, screening, or counseling for sexually transmitted infection, or for menstrual management. Although some genetic syndromes have no physical or intellectual impairment, others have significant ones; therefore, education and gynecologic care should be based on a patient's intellectual and physical capabilities. It is important to remember that adolescents with or without a genetic syndrome are sexual beings. Thus, education abo...
