Teenage girls who use the most common form of birth control pills, combination birth control pills with both estrogen and progestin, are 80% more likely to be prescribed an antidepressant than girls who were not taking birth control.
Lucia O’Sullivan and her colleagues studied adolescent sexual functioning; they compared an adolescent sample with an adult sample and found no significant differences between them.
The risks are higher for young adolescents because their brains are not neurally mature. The sexual maturation process produces sexual interest and stimulates thought processes.
Several brain regions in the frontal lobe of the cerebral cortex and in the hypothalamus that are deemed important for self-control, delayed gratification, risk analysis, and appreciation are not fully mature. Subsequent sexual behavior starts with the secretion of hormones from the hypothalamus and anterior pituitary gland.
When asked about abstinence, many girls reported they felt conflicted.
They were trying to balance maintaining a good reputation with trying to maintain a romantic relationship and wanting to behave in adult-like ways. Many boys believed that their male peers who were abstinent would not as easily climb the social ladder as sexually active boys.Girls were thought to be more restricted in their sexual attitudes; they were more likely than boys to believe that they would be able to control their sexual urges.Girls had a more negative association in how being sexually active could affect their future goals.In a sample of fifteen year olds from 24 countries, most participants self-reported that they had not experienced sexual intercourse.
