I've got great news to end the week. Teen pregnancy is way down.
But it's not because teens are having less sex.
According to a new study published online in the Journal of Adolescent Health the reason is pretty simple: Teens are using more, and more effective, contraceptives.
Births to teens age 15 to 19 dropped by 36% from 2007 to 2013. Teen pregnancies decreased by 25% from 2007 to 2011.
