Little babies are much less prone to using condoms when there are long-term contraceptive implants such as intrauterine devices (NMS)
) than peers who use other birth control patterns, according to a study in the United States.
Proper and consistent use of condoms remains an important strategy for the prevention of STIs and HIV, the researcher he has led
Since long-acting contraceptives are so effective against pregnancy prevention, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that new mothers of all ages be offered this kind of birth control before leaving the hospital with a new baby. As a sign of success with this approach, increased use of the Navy and other forms of long-acting contraception is associated with a decrease in pregnancy and fertility among young people in the United States
One drawback of long-acting contraceptives is that they do not protect against infections transmitted by sexual intercourse that has remained common among teenagers. For this protection, teenagers still have to use condoms
In this study of 5,480 new adolescents, only 29% use condoms. Young women who have used long-term contraception, such as a naive or hormonal implant under the skin of the hand, are half as likely to use condoms as those who do not use long-term birth control, the study found. in the US are historically low, teens and young people aged 15 to 24 are responsible for more than half of the new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the United States each year, "said senior health scientist Lee Warner, head of Health Women and Fertility Branches at the Reproductive Health Division of the American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta
While STIs such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, and HIV affect people of all ages, they take a particularly heavy toll on young people, the use of condoms is the same matter solely for this age group
Treatment of chlamydia and gonorrhea can cure the infection, but when these infections are not treated, they can be difficult or even impossible for women to become pregnant in the future. HIV is no longer a fully-fledged death sentence, but there is no cure, and patients need lifelong treatment to control the disease.
Most of the teenage mothers in this study have not planned to become pregnant. Usually they were between 18 and 19 years old, not married, and for the first time, according to the JAMA Pediatrics report.
About 21% of them used the Navy after they had babies and 17% used hormonal implants in the hand. 19659006] Navy teens are the least likely to report the use of condoms, with only 15% saying they did so, while 21% of young women with long-arm implants reported using a condom. Among those who use shorter contraceptive methods such as hormonal patches, rings, or injections, about 25% also use condoms, compared with 47% of the pill users.
The study is not intended to demonstrate whether or how different forms of contraception can directly influence the use of condoms among adolescent mothers and it has not been investigated how the effect of the contraceptive effect has influenced the STI level
. the limitations of the analysis are that the researchers relied on the answers of the teenage study on the use of condoms to prevent pregnancy – not to prevent SIS. Some teenagers may say they have not used condoms to prevent pregnancy because they have used another form of birth control for this purpose and just add condoms to prevent STIs. after women have received a Navy, suggesting that this kind of contraception can not necessarily change the way women defend against STIs, said Dr. Tami Chang of the Institute for Health Policy and Innovation at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
In my opinion, the risks of multiple pregnancies RESPONSIBLE outweigh the risks of STIs, "said Chan, who was not involved in the e-mail survey. "The unwanted pregnancy, especially among adolescents and young people, is an event that drastically changes every aspect of a young person's life forever," Chang said. "Most STIs can be tested and treated if they are not cured."  SEND UP NBC HEALTH TWITTER & FACEBOOK
