• Many sexually experienced adolescents (57% of males and 43% of females) did not receive formal instruction about contraception before they first had sex; fewer received instruction about where to get birth control (31% of males and 46% of females).

• Strong evidence suggests that approaches to sex education that include information about both contraception and abstinence help young people to delay sex, and also to have healthy relationships and avoid STDs and unintended pregnancies when they do become sexually active.
Many of these programs have resulted in delayed sexual debut, reduced frequency of sex and number of sexual partners, increased condom or contraceptive use, or reduced sexual risk-taking.
